The Qaida-inspired al-Nusra Front in Lebanon on Wednesday claimed responsibility for firing three rockets on the Bekaa town of al-Nabi Sheet, in the latest such attack this week.

“The heroes of al-Nusra Front in Lebanon shelled the lairs of the party of Iran (Hizbullah) with three Grad rockets in retaliation to its massacres in Syria,” the group said on its Twitter page.

It also vowed “major operations (against Hizbullah) that will deprive its ‘rabbis’ of sleep and inject terror into the hearts of its members,” noting that “such a party only understands the language of the sword.”
