3 rockets from Syria land in Eastern Lebanon

lebanon map - bekaa areaThree rockets launched from across the border with Syria hit the Beqaa valley of eastern Lebanon Saturday, causing no casualties, a security source told AFP.

“Three rockets launched from across the border with Syria hit an area that lies between the villages of Labweh and Jabbureh,” the source said.

The rockets struck some 30 kilometers north of the city of Baalbek, a stronghold of the Lebanese Shiite movement Hezbollah.

“There were no casualties, but some trees in the area went up in flames,” the source said.

Saturday’s is the latest in a string of cross-border rocket attacks that have escalated as Hezbollah’s involvement in Syria’s brutal conflict has increased.

A close ally of the regime in Damascus, Hezbollah has sent elite fighters to assist the Syrian army in its bid to crush a rebellion aimed at bringing down President Bashar al-Assad.

Syria’s rebels see Hezbollah as much as an enemy as they do Assad’s regime.

Now home to more than 700,000 Syrian refugees, fragile Lebanon has suffered a major spillover from the war.

Sectarian tensions pitting Sunnis against Shiites have escalated, and cross-border shellings, rocket attacks and shootings have hit several flashpoints in the border regions.

Last month, dozens died when massive car bombs a week apart hit Rweiss in Hezbollah’s Beirut stronghold, and then the majority Sunni city of Tripoli.

      Bring your warmonger boys back to Lebanon from Syria and tell your Ayadollar that Syria is not a Iranian province and bring them back home in one piece. Thats a simple solution. The sunnis in Syria are not easy going that would allow you to walk all over them. The repercussion has started and the invading pigs from Lebanon and Iran are caught by the balls. You talk about peace in the region then keep yourself in one piece first.
