Israeli Troops Attacked in Lebanon

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Israeli troops in Lebanon came under fire in two separate attacks last night, but no casualties were reported.

An IDF bus and escort jeeps, such as have been ordered to accompany all vehicles with Israelis aboard inside Lebanon since the death of six soldiers in an ambushed bus last month, came under fire in the central sector between Nabaraiya and Zaharani, the first such incident in this sector in recent weeks.

But in another attack, an IDF roadblock at Kfar Sil at the entrance to Beirut was fired on by rocket-propelled grenades. This was the second attack at this spot during the past week.
