The Lebanese army fired anti-aircraft guns on two Syrian warplanes that dropped four air-to-ground rockets on an eastern border town Monday, the Beirut Daily Star reported.

There were no reports of casualties or direct hits on Syrian planes. The newspaper quoted a military source as saying that the army received orders “to fire on any warplane that violates Lebanese airspace.”

Syria has fired on eastern Lebanese villages several times in the grisly civil war that has dragged on for nearly four years since the Arab Spring protests spurred Syrian President Bassar al-Assad to wage an all-out assault to crush opposition.

The Hezbollah terrorist organization, based in Lebanon and financed by Iran, has sent thousands of fighters to join Assad’s forces, leaving the fractured Lebanese government even more unstable than ever.
