Israelis Kill 2 Terrorists in Eastern Lebanon

An Israeli army patrol killed two terrorists in a clash in eastern Lebanon Monday, a military spokesman announced today. He said the killings were confirmed only yesterday when a routine search of the area turned up the two bodies and tracks leading toward Syrian army lines.

According to the spokesman, the clash occurred near Hamed E-Luz village close to the Syrian lines, in the vicinity of a dirt road where three Israel army officers were killed by a road mine last week.
