Three rockets fired from across the border with Syria struck residential neighborhoods in the Bekaa town of Al Labweh on Tuesday, state-run National News Agency reported.
The Grad rockets caused material damage but no casualties, according to Al Labweh municipal chief Ramez Amhaz.
“Youssef Al Itawi's house was among those damaged,” NNA said.
Voice of Lebanon radio (93.3) said "Youssef Itawi was hit by a vehicle as he was escaping the rockets."
In the wake of the shelling, "gunmen blocked the Al Labweh-Arsal road," according to the radio station.
On Monday, four people were wounded when eight rockets fired from Syria hit the Bekaa town of Brital and its surroundings, in an attack that was claimed by the Qaeda-inspired Al Nusra Front in Lebanon.
“With God's help, the heroes of Al Nusra Front in Lebanon fired several Grad rockets on the dens of the 'party of Satan' (Hezbollah), in retaliation to the continued massacres of the party of Iran,” the Front said, calling on what it called “our people in Lebanon” to be “patient.”
