Two Israeli soldiers were wounded last night in a clash with terrorists near the Lebanese border. Their condition was reported not serious. The men were hit when their patrol ran into an ambush while chasing a terrorist gang that had crossed into Israel from Lebanese territory. A water pipeline was damaged by explosives south of El Arish in northern Sinai last night. Repair work was begun this morning and a search was conducted for the saboteurs. Meanwhile, there were reports that the Egyptian army it conducting military exercises on the west side of the Suez Canal.
