(Newser) – Syria fired three rockets into Lebanon today, as it threatened to do last week. The jet-fired rockets hit empty buildings in the border town of Arsaal, CNN reports. Syrian officials claim armed terrorists have infiltrated Syria from Lebanon, and the UN has voiced concern over the growing tension and cross-border fire. No injuries have been reported from today's rocket attacks.
