Download PDF for this date

Two terrorists who were placing explosives at the side of the road near Sidon in south Lebanon were killed by an Israel Defense Force patrol. There were no Israeli casualties. A search of the terrorists’ bodies revealed that they had been carrying firearms and a large quantity of explosives and sabotage material.

In other incidents, two IDF soldiers were wounded yesterday when light arms fire was directed at an Israeli position from Syrian-held posts in the Kfar Kook area of the Bekka valley.

This morning, a grenade was thrown at a South Lebanon Army patrol in the market area of Tyre. No one was wounded. The SLA soldiers did not return fire because the market place was crowded at the time.
