An Israel Navy patrol intercepted a band of heavily armed terrorists in two rubber thingies off the cost of Lebanon, a military spokesman announced Wednesday. He said the incident occurred three days ago when the boats were spotted off Sidon, on course south to Israel. He said the terrorists were members of an El Fatah faction and carried a large arsenal of weapons, including explosives, mortars and rocket-propelled grenades.
