IDF Continues Raids on Hezbollah Bases

Download PDF for this date

Israeli aircraft attacked Hezbollah bases in southern Lebanon on Friday, continuing a series of raids against the Islamic fundamentalist group.

The raids came in response to stepped-up attacks on Israel Defense Force and South Lebanon Army forces in the border security zone, apparently aimed at disrupting the recent visit to the region of U.S. Secretary of States James Baker who was here to promote the Middle East peace process.

Reports from Beirut said that four planes had carried out two sorties against targets in the Jebel Safi area in the Tufach region some 10 miles east of Sidon.

The IDF spokesman said all planes returned safely to their bases after the raids.
