— The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) foiled two Arab terrorist attempts to infiltrate into Israel recently, according to the UNIFIL spokesman. He would not confirm reports that the UNIFIL had been put in a state of alert because of the two clashes. The spokesman said that Nigerian troops had fired warning shots at five terrorists west of Yakhmur on Monday, and the terrorists retreated.

Shortly afterwards Dutch troops stopped another group of five terrorists by firing smoke grenades at them as they tried to infiltrate near Haref. The Dutch position came under heavy and light machinegun fire about 45 minutes after the incident, the UNIFIL spokesman said.
