The Israeli Navy, on a routine patrol, intercepted Saturday night two armed terrorists heading toward Israel in a small boat, a military spokesman disclosed today. According to the spokesman, the terrorists were carrying explosives and other sabotage equipment when they were stopped near Rosh Hanikra on the Lebanese border, inside Israel’s territorial waters. The terrorists, the spokesman said, were taken ashore for interrogation.
