Seven people were injured on Tuesday in a cross-border rocket attack carried out by militant mercenaries in Syria against the Lebanese northeastern town of Hermel, the state-run National News Agency reported.

NNA said nine rockets landed in Hermel and its outskirts a day after a teenage girl was killed in a similar incident.

On Monday, Loulou Awwad, 17, was martyred and another woman from the same family was wounded by rockets from the same source that targeted residential neighborhoods in Hermel.

The rockets also caused major material damage, the NNA said.

The targeted area lies just across from the Syrian town of Qusayr on the border with Lebanon, where Syrian army has been engaged in heavy clashes with terrorist takfiris seeking to topple the Syrian government, destabilize security in the region and spread panic among citizens.

Elnashra news website reported that residents in West Bekaa have heard the sound heavy thud of rockets landed in Hermel.

The Syrian Army launched on May 19 a large-scale operation to clear the area of terrorist gangs and liberate the citizens stuck there.
