Rockets land close to Lebanon's presidential palace


Two rockets have landed east of Beirut, close to a military compound and Lebanon’s presidential palace – according to security sources.

It is the second time in two months that rockets have been fired in the Baabda area.

No one was hurt in the incident, which comes amid heightened sectarian over the civil war in neighbouring Syria.

Violence has spilled over into Lebanon, with deadly clashes in the coastal cities of Tripoli and Sidon. There have also been rocket attacks by suspected Syrian rebels on Shi’ite towns in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley.
