Israel Air Force jets attacked terrorist targets in southern Lebanon Thursday for the second consecutive day and the fourth time this month.

Pilots reported direct hits on buildings used to store ammunition and equipment northeast of the Lebanese port city of Sidon. The bases and ammunition dumps were used by Abu Nidal’s Fatah Revolutionary Council and other terrorist organizations, a military spokesman said.

Reports from Beirut said nine people were killed and five injured. Ten deaths were reported in the attack on the same area Wednesday.
