Israel Air Force fighters shot down two Syrian MIG fighters in renewed aerial warfare over Lebanon today, a military spokesman reported. He said the Syrian planes had attempted to interfere with Israeli attacks on Syrian artillery which had been shelling Israeli positions near the Beirut-Damascus highway.
