Syrian air strikes kill three near Lebanese border

BEIRUT - Syrian air strikes near the Lebanese border town of Arsal killed three people and wounded seven on Friday, security sources said, in further spillover from Syria's civil war that has raised tensions across Lebanon.


The sources said the dead were believed to be rebels involved in Syria's conflict but their nationality remained unclear.


Rockets fired by Sunni militants inside Syria later in the day wounded a woman and her two children in the Lebanese town of Britel, a stronghold of the pro-Assad Shi'ite Muslim militant group Hezbollah, 35 km (20 miles) south of Arsal. (Reuters)
