Syrian military helicopters launched three raids in areas inside Lebanon close to the border town of Arsal on Monday morning, witnesses and Lebanon’s official news agency said.

Helicopters carried out the raids in the largely unpopulated mountainous areas on the outskirts of Arsal near the Syrian border, witnesses told AFP.

It was unclear if there were any casualties in the raids, which Lebanon’s National News Agency said hit the areas of Khirbet Yunin and Wadi Ajram.
