A 60-year-old man suffered a slight leg wound when an explosive device detonated near a bus stop in the center of Kfar Saba Sunday morning. Another device exploded near an apartment building several hundred meters away but caused no casualties or damage. Police detained 100 Arabs in the vicinity for questioning.

An explosive charge detonated near a soldiers’ hitch-hiking station outside Ashkelon Sunday causing neither injuries nor damage.

Israel Defense Force units, meanwhile, searched the panhandle of Upper Galilee for the impact crater of Katyusha rockets after explosions were heard in the region early Saturday morning. By Sunday evening, no signs had been found of a rocket attack in Upper Galilee or in the south Lebanon security zone.

Violence erupted in the security zone Saturday where four terrorists were killed in a clash with units of the Israel-backed South Lebanon Army (SLA). One SLA man was killed and another was wounded. Several of the terrorists who escaped may have been wounded.
