Three Israel Defense Force soldiers were wounded in Lebanon today when light arms fire and grenades were directed at their patrol near Medoushi village, southeast of Sidon.

In another incident involving the IDF, an amored personnel carrier ran over a mine on the eastern sector of the Lebanon front Friday, but there were no casualties. Another mine found nearby was exploded by army engineers.

The armored personnel carrier exploded the mine on a dirt road near Amik, northeast of Lake Karoun, but there were neither casualties nor damage. The Amik area, near the line with the Syrians, has been the scene of several shooting incidents in recent days.
