TEL AVIV (Aug. 10)
Israeli Air Force planes attacked terrorist bases on the outskirts of refugee camps near Sidon on Sunday afternoon, an Israel Defense Force spokesman announced. All the planes returned safely and the pilots reported direct hits on their targets. The bases served as sites from which to launch terrorist strikes, the IDF said. According to Beirut Radio reports, four Israeli helicopters took part in the seven-minute attack. Two IDF navy missile boats patrolled the Lebanon shore opposite the refugee camps as the attack took place.
