Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said he regrets not having killed Yasser Arafat during the 1982 Lebanon War. Sharon, who led the invasion as Israel’s defense minister, told the Ma’ariv newspaper that he regrets an agreement among Israeli officials not to “eliminate” the PLO leader — today the Palestinian Authority president — as they forced the PLO out of Lebanon.
