Israel Strikes Targets South of Beirut

Download PDF for this date

Israeli air force jets attacked terrorist targets in Lebanon on Wednesday, for the third time in eight days.

All aircraft returned safely to their bases, a military spokesman said.

The targets were described as installations of the Abu Nidal group and the Druse militia near Na’ame, in the vicinity of Damour, south of Beirut.

Reports from Beirut said the Israeli planes made three sorties over the target area. They gave no information about casualties or damage.

The air force conducted two raids on terrorist targets in Lebanon last week, one on June 14 and the other on June 16. In the June 14 raid, the commander of a military unit of the pro-Syrian Palestine Liberation Front and two of his aides were killed.
