Israeli Soldier Wounded, Seven Terrorists Killed

An Israeli soldier was slightly wounded today near Aley on the Beirut-Damascus main highway when an explosive charge went off on the side of the road as he passed by. He was hit in the hand and treated on the spot and returned to duty shortly afterwards.

In other incidents, seven terrorists were killed and three were wounded by Israeli forces today and last Thursday. Five of those killed and the three wounded clashed with an IDF unit in the Shouf mountains on Thursday. The army spokesman said that the three wounded and two of those killed had recently escaped from the Ansar detention camp and were being sought. The other three dead terrorists were Druze. There were no Israeli casualties.
