Israeli Jets Bomb Bases in Lebanon

Israeli air force jets attacked targets in southern Lebanon on Tuesday and returned safely to their bases.

The targets were reported to have been terrorist bases west of Alawezeh village. They were used as planning and staging areas for raids against Israel Defense Force and South Lebanon Army positions in the southern Lebanon security zone, a military spokesman said.

The air raid was the second over Lebanon since last Friday and the 15th this year. On Friday, Israeli jets destroyed terrorist headquarters near the port city of Sidon.
