Hamas Continues Attacks in Lebanon

September 9, 1993

The Moslem fundamentalist group Hezbollah showed this week that it has not yet joined on the Middle East peace bandwagon.

The group admitted responsibility for virtually all the daily attacks against Israeli and allied forces in south Lebanon in recent days.

But despite shootings, mortar firings and roadside bombs aimed at the Israel Defense Force and its allied South Lebanon Army, most explosives have been discovered and exploded harmlessly, and no serious damage has been caused.

The Iranian-backed Hezbollah’s stated goal is to force the IDF and the SLA out of Lebanon.
