Several Syrian shells hit the northern Wadi Khaled region at dawn Tuesday, damaging several houses and causing panic among residents, the National News Agency reported.

NNA said the shells struck houses in the Bqaiaa-Mqaibleh area near the legal Bqaiaa-Jisr al-Qmar crossing, damaging the houses and forcing residents to flee to safer areas.

Shells also hit bushes along al-Kabir river on the outskirts of the towns of Hekr Janine, Qashlaq and Ammar al-Baykat, NNA said.

Several people have been killed and injured in recent months from Syrian shelling or infiltration into Lebanese territories by Syrian troops fighting armed rebels that are seeking to overthrow President Bashar Assad.
