One Syrian was killed and 5 other people wounded when the Syrian air force raided the outskirts of Lebanon's eastern Bekaa border town of Arsal, the National News Agency (NNA) reported.
The Syrian jets targeted militants in Wadi al-Zumrani, Wadi Ata and Wadi al-Ajram on the outskirts of Arsal and deep into Lebanese territory of about 7 kilometers, according to the NNA.
A Syrian family of six people were passing by in the area when the raid took place which resulted in the killing of a young boy and the injury of the rest of the family who were transferred to al-Rahma field hospital in Arsal.
The army later issued a communique confirming the air raids without providing any details, saying that "Syrian warplanes targeted several border areas in the outskirts of Arsal."
Arsal, near the border with Syria, is a Sunni town where residents support the rebels fighting against the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces, and hosts tens of thousands of Syrian refugees.
Ever since the Syrian revolt erupted in March 2011, Arsal has become a key conduit for refugees and wounded people fleeing strife-torn Syria.
