  • Description

    Israeli jets attacked a number of small villages in south Lebanon on Saturday (5 September), as part of the new Israeli drive against alleged refuges of Palestinian guerrillas. The air battle was mainly directed on the villages of Rachaya Foukhair and Hibbaryeh.

    Another village in which many house were damaged in the attacks was Beit Leef, at the foot of the Yarmouk mountain. The heights behind it are occupied by Israeli troops.

    On the sixth of September, Lebanon charged that Israeli forces which withdrew from Lebanese territory during the night had returned that morning (6.30 local time, 04.30 GMT), and were advancing towards the villages of Kafr Haman and Rachaya Foukhair in the south.

    according to a Lebanese spokesman in Beirut, two civilians were killed in the two days of fighting in South Lebanon. The Palestine armed struggle command said that 13 Arab commandos were killed in the fighting.

    The U.N. Security Council on Saturday evening (5 September) demanded the immediate withdrawal of the Israeli forces which had crossed into Lebanon to strike at Arab guerrilla bases.

    The council acted in response to a Lebanese complaint that two Israeli companies, with air support, penetrated Lebanon causing death, injuries and property damage.
