Three IDF soldiers were wounded as their patrol was travelling north of the Awali River today, the army spokesman said.

He gave no other details of the patrol, but according to reports from Beirut radio an IDF patrol consisting of eight armored personnel carriers, four Merkava tanks and an army bulldozer crossed the Awali River today and took up positions in two places in the Kharoub area, where fighting has recently raged between Druze and Phalangist Christian forces.

The radio said that IDF planes also flew at supersonic speeds over Beirut and Baalbek, creating loud sonic booms.
