Boar Trips Israeli Hit on Lebanon

Download PDF for this date

A false alarm triggered the heavy shelling of two Shi’ite villages in the southern Lebanon security zone Wednesday night.

The Israel Defense Force and its allied South Lebanon Army let loose an artillery barrage against Kabrikha and Majdal Slim villages on the northern edge of the zone, after the explosion of what they thought was a Katyusha rocket.

Actually, the blast was a land mine detonated by a wild boar, U.N. sources reported.
