Israel Air Force helicopter gunships destroyed a “terrorist boat” in the port of Sidon, south Lebanon Thursday, a military spokesman announced. He said the aircraft returned safely to their base.

The strike was the third this week at terrorist targets in the Sidon area. Israeli jets bombed a terrorist base used for seaborne missions against Israel Sunday. On Monday, combat helicopters attacked the same targets under protection by jet fighters.
