Israel Army Ends Ten-day Mopping-up Operation Against Infiltrees

The Israel Army this week-end completed a ten-day “mopping-up operation” in the Beit Jibrin area, just north of the Negev desert.

A number of Arab infiltrees who have been mining Israel roads and otherwise ambushing Jewish soldiers and settlers were killed and many more were driven out of Israel territory. A number of Israel soldiers were killed in such a land mine ambush some weeks ago.
