Five terrorists apparently attempting to infiltrate Israel by sea were killed off the southern Lebanese coast Saturday night, when an Israeli navy patrol boat sunk their motorized rubber dinghy with a single shot.

Navy sources said it was the fourth attempt this year to attack Israel from the sea. According to the sources, there have been 41 unsuccessful attempts in the last five years.

There were no Israeli casualties in the latest engagement, which was very brief.

The terrorists’ affiliation was not immediately established.
