Terrorist Bases Hit Again

Download PDF for this date

For the second time in 24 hours, Israeli Air Force jets hit terrorist bases in south Lebanon. The sites attacked Monday were near the town of Ba’albek in the Bekaa Valley. An attack Sunday was carried out south of Sidon. Monday’s attack was the seventh since the beginning of the year.

The Israel Defense Force spokesman reported that all planes in Monday’s attack returned safely and the pilots said they had scored direct hits on the bases. The targets were described by the IDF as the headquarters of Fatah terrorists loyal to PLO chief Yasir Arafat and of breakaway rebels backed by Syria and led by Saed Musa. The IDF said the structures served the organizations as bases from which to launch strikes against Israel.
