In an attack claimed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham, three rockets hit two villages linked to Hezbollah in the Bekaa valley. The attack was also claimed by the Free Sunnis of Baalbek Brigade, which earlier criticized the new security plan for Tripoli. Charges were filed against eight Lebanese men, six of them in absentia, accused of terrorism and membership in the Al Nusrah Front. Syria's ambassador to Lebanon denied reports that Lebanese detainees kidnapped during the 1975-90 civil war were still being held in Syrian prisons.
