A Syrian chopper has fired rockets into Arsal city in eastern Lebanon, causing some damages.

A Lebanese security officer on condition of anonymity said that the military copter violated Lebanon’s airspace and fired four rockets into the Arsal area, two of which didn't explode.

No casualties have been reported.

The attacks comes as Syria has asked Lebanese officials time and time to hold their grip on Lebanon's borders and block arms shipment into Syria which will end at the hands of terrorists fighting against the government of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.

The eastern Lebanese city of Arsal is turned into a safe haven for foreign-backed Takfiri militants operating against Syria.

Foreign-sponsored militancy in Syria has taken its toll on the lives of many people, including large numbers of Syrian soldiers and security personnel, since March 2011.

Western powers and their regional allies including the Israeli regime, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar are partners in supporting anti-Syria militant groups, including al-Qaeda-linked terrorists, to destabilize Syria and overthrow the Syrian government.

Syria has repeatedly reported the infiltration of militants from Lebanon across its border.

On July 16, gunmen assassinated Mohammed Darrar Jammo, the pro-Syria head of the political and international relations division of the International Organization for Arab Immigrants, in southern Lebanon.

According to the United Nations, more than 90,000 people have died and millions of others displaced in over two years of violence in Syria.
