Israel Raids Targets in Lebanon

Download PDF for this date

Four rocket firing Israel air force jets leveled buildings at the Ein Hilweh refugee camp, near Sidon in southern Lebanon Tuesday.

They were followed by four helicopter gunships that strafed the coastal road southwest of Sidon.

The Israel Defense Force claimed at least three terrorists were killed and nine wounded in the dual attack, Israel’s 24th air strike against targets in Lebanon this year.

Targets included bases and equipment used by Force 17, a unit of the Palestine Liberation Organization close to Yasir Arafat, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, headed by George Habash.
