Download PDF for this date

Five Israeli border policemen were injured this morning when their vehicle was hit by bazooka shells fired from the Lebanese border north of Shetullah in Upper Galilee. The incident was the first in several weeks along the Lebanese frontier. A local resident was injured and three Israeli soldiers sustained minor scratches when a hand grenade exploded yesterday in the Jabaliya quarter of Gaza. Several suspects have been detained for questioning.
