Download PDF for this date

Two Katyusha rockets were fired from Lebanese territory towards western Galilee this evening. They caused slight damage but not casualties. It was the first time in many months that shells have fallen in western Galilee, from inside Lebanon.

Meanwhile, in the Beirut area heavy shelling was reported in sharp exchanges between Druze militia and Christian Phalangists. Three residents of the Christian quarters of east Beirut were reported killed and some 24 injured, according to radio reports from the Lebanese capital.
