Israel air force jets on Monday attacked terrorist installations east of Sidon, in southern Lebanon.

The targets, near Jarrah village, were described as training grounds for Nayef Hawatmeh’s Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine and a jumping-off point for incursions against Israel.

The raid was the fifth this year by Israeli aircraft over Lebanon.

The fourth occurred Friday night, when Israeli helicopter gunships fired rockets at an Amal base south of Sidon.

The attack was a described as a “warning” to the mainstream Shi’ite militia in Lebanon not to cooperate with Palestinian terrorists.

Reports from Lebanon said the target, near al-Hajjch village, was damaged, but not destroyed, and that no casualties resulted from the attack.
