Two Terrorists Killed in Infiltration Attempt

Two Arab terrorists were killed in a skirmish with Israeli forces tonight while attempting to infiltrate Israel from south Lebanon. A military spokesman said the terrorists were intercepted near Misgav Am, the kibbutz that was attacked by terrorists last April. There were no Israeli casualties.

The terrorists are believed to have been members of Naif Hawatmeh’s extremist Popular Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine. A Russian-made camera was found on the bodies in addition to a Kalochnikof assault rifle, hand grenades and other weapons.
