Israel, Hezbollah clash in Lebanon

JERUSALEM, Jan. 5 (JTA) — For the third successive day, Israel and Hezbollah engaged in heavy exchanges of fire Sunday in southern Lebanon. Israeli jets fired at suspected bases of the Islamic fundamentalist movement in Lebanon and returned safely to base. In separate fighting, three Israeli soldiers were reported to be very lightly hurt in clashes. The weekend was marked by Hezbollah attacks on Israeli outposts in southern Lebanon and by retaliatory raids launched by Israeli fighter jets.
