Beirut (CNN) -- Syria carried out an airstrike on a refugee camp in northern Lebanon Saturday, killing nine Syrians and wounding nine more, a Lebanese state-run news agency reported.

The strike centered on a Syrian refugee camp located near the Syrian border between the towns of Baalbeck and Arsal in the Bekaa Valley, the National News Agency said.

The Red Cross took the casualties to Universal Hospital in Baalbek.

Saturday's strike was not the first by the Syrian government, which has accused rebels of smuggling arms and supplies across the border.

An air strike killing nine and wounding nine is not much of an air strike. One person with a 30 round ar15 could do more damage.
