Syrian Jets Fire into Lebanon
Last Friday, SANA, the Syrian state-run media, reported that beginning March 12, 'large numbers of armed terrorist groups' infiltrated Syria from Lebanon
March 18, 2013(CNN) -- Two Syrian jets on Monday fired three rockets that hit empty buildings near the Lebanese town of Arsaal near the Syrian border, a local source said. There were no injuries, according to the source.
The source's information comes as Lebanese state-run news agency NNA reports that Syrian warplanes attacked sites in northern Lebanon.
Last Friday, SANA, the Syrian state-run media, reported that beginning March 12, "large numbers of armed terrorist groups" infiltrated Syria from Lebanon, according to the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry.
The Ministry accused the alleged terrorists of receiving "clear logistic support from inside the Lebanese lands" and ferrying their wounded and dead in ambulances across the Lebanese border.
Last Thursday, the U.N. Security Council voiced "grave concern over repeated incidents of cross-border fire which caused death and injury among the Lebanese population, incursions, abductions and arms trafficking across the Lebanese-Syrian border, as well as other border violations." The declaration followed a briefing by officials on how the conflict in Syria has spilled into Lebanon.
