Rocket fire from Syria killed a 17-year-old girl and injured one of her relatives in the Lebanese border region of Hermel on Monday, state news reported.

The National News Agency said that four rockets launched from Syria landed in a residential neighborhood of Lebanon's eastern Hermel district.

The attack comes one day after several rockets fired from Syria landed on uninhabited land in the same region.

Sporadic shelling from Syria has killed and injured a number of Lebanese who live along the border since the civil war broke out two years ago.
