The curfew imposed by the Israel army on the Lebanese town of Aley, on the Beirut Damascus highway, was lifted for a few hours Wednesday to allow residents to lay in stock of foodstuffs. The curfew was imposed Tuesday to halt fierce fighting between Druze and Christians in the mountainous Shouf region of Lebanon. Meanwhile, the Israeli police unit which has been probing the collapse of the building in Tyre housing the army’s local headquarters has virtually ruled out PLO sabotage as the cause of the blast.
