Terrorist from Lebanon Slain in Clash with Israel Patrol

An Arab terrorist who apparently penetrated into Israel from Lebanon last night was killed in an encounter with an Israeli patrol only hours after the United Nations Security Council in New York voted to condemn Israel for its “repeated attacks” on Lebanon. The terrorist was killed, and three Israeli soldiers were slightly injured, north of Kibbutz Dan in the Upper Galilee. The Arab apparently had entered Israel with fellow terrorists from “Fatahland” in southeastern Lebanon. The others escaped into the dense vegetation and rocks.
