Syrian warplanes strike Lebanese territory, kill child

Share:

arsal mapSyrian warplanes shelled the Zamarani-Ajram road in Lebanon’s Beqaa on Friday, killing one 12-year-old boy identified as Ayham Rakan Mahmoud and injuring four other members of his family.

The casualties fell when one of the rockets hit a truck carrying a Syrian family that was heading to one of the agricultural lands in the area.

The shelled area is situated 7 kilometers away from the Syrian border, and 4 kilometers away from the Lebanese town of Arsal.

Two Syrian nationals were killed on Friday and and five other people wounded in five air raids staged by the Syrian regime on the outskirts of the eastern border town of Arsal.

The state-run National News Agency reported that the Syrian jets targeted militants in Wadi al-Zumrani, Wadi Ata and Wadi al-Ajram.

A Syrian family, comprised of a father and three children, was passing in the area when the raid took place.

NNA said that the injured were transferred to al-Rahma field hospital in Arsal.

The five wounded people sustained minor injuries.

The army later issued a communique confirming the air raids without providing any details.

“At 8:55 am and 10:15 am Syrian warplanes targeted several border areas in the outskirts of Arsal,” the army said.

Arsal, near the border with Syria, is a Sunni town where residents support the rebels fighting President Bashar Assad’s forces. The town also hosts tens of thousands of Syrian refugees.

Ever since the Syrian revolt erupted in March 2011, Arsal has become a key conduit for refugees and wounded people fleeing strife-torn Syria.

    Oh the mighty syrian airpower have killed a child but they won’t go kill the IS and their beloved friend Caliph Ibrahim..they pretend to bomb his position and they kill 74 civilians.. bravo.. but why would they kill him because he is supplying them with oil.. how could anyone in hezbollah land pretend that these guys are not in bed together.. the caliph is providing the syrian and iranian and hezbollah a cover. the IS make big noise about them and the latter say well see look what have we been fighting the Islamic terrorists.. Syria is providing revenues for the IS. the IS provides money for their gangs and buy weapons.. what a convenient agreement..

      He has only made a couple airstrikes against IS in Iraq just to make the headlines. Meanwhile he hasn’t bothered touching IS bases in Syria, where they are much bigger.

          Would be nice if they would all just finish killing each other soon, and allow the humans to live in peace.

    Countries get bombed by their neighbor all the time, right?

    They murdered a child on our land and we’ll just dust off and move on like nothing happened.

    I’m sure Farq can justify this.

        “It’s vital that we keep our history in Iraq in mind, and apply some healthy skepticism to the claims they offer us this time around.”
        As with ALL ‘headlines’ …. it only needs the ‘right words’ to sway the uneducated.
        And propaganda sure flows everywhere, doesn’t it? 😉
