Two rockets hit Lebanese capital
Several people were wounded in the incident that took place on Sunday, according to Lebanese security sources. Some vehicles and homes were also damaged.
The security sources said 107-mm rockets were used in the attack.
There has been no claim of responsibility for the rocket attack so far.
Lebanon’s caretaker Interior Minister Marwan Charbel, who visited at the site of the rocket attack, said it was an “act of sabotage.”
“The rockets were fired from a secluded area, southeast of the scene of the incident,” he stated.
“I believe this was an act of sabotage,” Charbel added, when asked about the motive for the attack. “I hope what is happening in Syria will not happen in Lebanon.”
The rocket incident in Beirut comes amid recent clashes between supporters and opponents of the Syrian government in Lebanon’s northern city of Tripoli, which have led to the death of more than two dozen people.
