Download PDF for this date

An Israel Defense Force patrol killed two terrorists in a clash in the southern Lebanese security zone Sunday morning.

There were no IDF casualties in what was described as a “routine operation” in the western sector of the 50-mile-long zone paralleling the Israeli border.

On Friday, Israeli air force planes bombed a base of Abu Nidal’s Fatah Revolutionary Council near the southern Lebanon port city of Sidon.

An IDF spokesman said the base was used to launch attacks on Israel. All planes returned safely, the spokesman said.

Reports from the area said four people were killed and nine were injured in the air attack.
