Download PDF for this date

Israeli aircraft raided terrorist installations in southern Lebanon for the ninth time this year Wednesday and returned safely to their bases, a military spokesman announced.

The pilots reported direct hits on targets south of Sidon, according to the spokesman.

The Israeli announcement said air force “planes” carried out the attack.

But reports from Beirut said three Israeli helicopter gunships strafed an installation at the Rashidieh refugee camp south of Sidon, belonging to the Lebanese Communist Party.

Beirut said seven guerrillas were killed. One report said the fatalities were “children.”
