Several people were injured on Tuesday in two cross-border rocket attacks in the northeastern town of Hermel, the state-run National News Agency reported. A total of seven rockets landed in Hermel and its outskirts a day after a girl was killed in a similar incident.
In the first attack, two rockets hit the Hermel area. "One of them hit a residential neighborhood in the center of the town while the other hit the hills facing the town," NNA said. Later, the agency said a third rocket hit the Hermel region, leaving several people lightly wounded.
At 4:15 p.m., two more rockets hit the region. One hit a house and wounded three people, and the second landed in a neighboring grove. "Fifteen minutes later, two other rockets landed in the area, causing no injuries," NNA said.
On Monday, Loulou Awwad, 17, died and another woman from the same family was wounded by rockets that targeted residential neighborhoods in Hermel. The rockets also caused major material damage, NNA said.
The area lies just across from the Syrian town of al-Qusayr where regime troops backed by Hizbullah fighters have been engaged in heavy clashes with rebels seeking to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad.
