— Israeli forces raided a Palestinian terrorist base south of Sidon on the Lebanese coast last night. They ambushed a jeep, killing all of its passengers said to have been members of a terrorist organization, an army spokesman reported today. No further details of the operation were disclosed.

The raid was the third attack by Israeli forces on terrorist targets in Lebanon during the past week. The earlier actions followed the rocket shelling of Kiryat Shemoneh and Metullah in Upper Galilee by terrorists. Israel retaliated with artillery and an air attack on terrorist bases.
