Three terrorists were killed and an Israeli soldier slightly wounded Monday night in a clash near the ruins of the Beaufort Castle in southern Lebanon.
As Israel Defense Force artillery continued Tuesday to shell the area, Israeli troops searched for traces of the gang.
The soldiers participating in the action were praised by the regional commander, Maj. Gen. Yitzhak Mordechai, saying they had prevented a serious attack against Israeli installations. The wounded soldier returned to his duties after receiving first aid.
