BEIRUT, March 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Militants of Syrian armed opposition have attacked with mortars the border areas in eastern Lebanon on Monday.
Lebanon-based TV channel Al Mayadeen reported that four rocket projectiles launched from the Syrian territory fell in Shiite settlements of Nabi Osman and al-Labweh. There were no reports about victims or the extent of destruction.
Sunday night, two people were killed and 6 were wounded as a result of a terrorist attack in Nabi Osman. Al Manar TV channel reported that a suicide bomber set off a car bomb. Ahrar al-Sunnah militant group claimed responsibility for the attack.
Nabi Osman and al-Labweh are situated in a mostly Shiite region in Beqaa valley. Local experts link the terrorist act with developments in Yabroud, where the Syrian army eliminated units of armed opposition on past weekend. The militants stepped back to the area of Lebanese border town of Ersal, where their rear bases are located.
