An Israeli soldier was slightly wounded north of Tyre Sunday when his vehicle was ambushed by terrorists, an army spokesman announced. The attackers opened fire with light arms and Israeli troops returned the fire and launched a search for the attackers. The vehicle that was ambushed was travelling in a convoy, which has become mandatory for all Israelis travelling in Lebanon because of the increase in the number of armed attacks.
