Three Syrian refugees were killed Wednesday by Hezbollah artillery shelling over a camp on the outskirts of the Lebanese border town of Arsal, according to a Syrian activist from inside the town, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

"Dozens of rocket shells fell in the vicinity of Wadi Hamid camp, located on the outskirts of Arsal, killing three of the Syrian refugees,” the source, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told Anadolu Agency.

"This is not the first time the camp came under shelling by Hezbollah on the pretext that they target elements belong to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham group claiming they are hidden inside the camp," he added.

The Syrian activist refuted the presence of gunmen inside the camp, which, according to him, “contains 1,400 refugees".

Hezbollah troops and Syrian Air Force (SAF) jets launched an attack last Friday on militants in the Lebanese border region of Arsal.

The town of Arsal, which lies around 125 kilometers (78 miles) northeast of Beirut, has been the scene of frequent fighting between Syrian armed groups, Hezbollah and the Lebanese army.
