Two Israeli soldiers were wounded Tuesday night by small arms fire and bazookas fired from an ambush at an IDF patrol west of Ein Zahlata, in central Lebanon. The wounded men were evacuated to a Haifa hospital by helicopter while large army units searched the area, using flares during the night. Several weeks ago two Israeli soldiers were killed and two wounded in the same area when their vehicle was ambushed by terrorists who pretended their car had broken down on the side of the road. Israel Radio said Wednesday that since February, six Israeli soldiers had been killed and over 30 wounded in 26 incidents in Lebanon.
