Israeli air force jets Wednesday night bombed a terrorist strong-hold in eastern Lebanon and returned safely to their bases, a military spokesman announced.

He identified the target as a base used by Ahmed Jabril’s Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command for training purposes and to attack Israel. The base was destroyed, the spokesman said.

The air raid was the third by Israel this year on targets in Lebanon.
