A Israel Defense Force patrol killed two guerrillas in south Lebanon Friday after they fired on the soldiers near Amik village in the eastern sector of the front. One soldier was grazed by a bullet but was able to continue his duties.

The dead bodies yielded firearms, grenades and explosives, an IDF spokesman reported.

A Katyusha rocket was fired at an IDF unit near Ansariya in the southern sector of the front Friday and a rocket propelled grenade was fired near Tyre. There were no casualties in either of the incidents.

A patrol of the Israel-backed South Lebanon Army was fired on from a passing car near Tyre today. There were no casualties.
