Background: A man killed and four people injured when Arab guerrillas fired a number of Russian-made Katuysha rockets into the northern Israeli town of Kiryat Shmona early on Sunday (June 28). Israeli artillery returned fire against the guerrillas, based on the slopes of Mount Hermon in the Lebanon.
Kiryat Shmona was hit three times in three hours by the guerrillas, firing from Southern Lebanon. Electricity and telephone lines were cut in the first attack but they were quickly repaired.
The guerilla action from Lebanon was the heaviest since Lebanese authorities announced measures to prevent the shelling of Israeli settlements from Lebanese territory two weeks ago.
The attacks came from a sector of Lebanese territory where Israeli forces carried out a 32-hour anti-guerrilla operation six weeks ago following a series of similar attacks against Kiryat Shmona.
