  • Description

    The Lebanese village of Hasbaya lay heavily damaged on Thursday (22 June) following an Israeli raid against Arab guerrilla bases operating in southeastern Lebanon.

    Official Lebanese reports say five civilians were killed and 25 wounded in the attack on the Hasbaya area.

    A spokesmen for the Palestinian resistance movement said 30 Arab guerrillas were killed and a similar number wounded.

    Israel said the raid was in retaliation for a guerrilla bazooka and mining raid north of Israeli-occupied Mount Hermon area in which four Israelis were killed.

    In Beirut, President Suleiman Franjieh held an urgent cabinet meeting to discuss the implications of the Israeli raid.

    Forty-eight hour a after the attack on Hasbaya, Israeli warplanes were reported to have launched another attack in the same area.

    Lebanon, meanwhile, has asked the United Nations security Council to consider the Israeli incursions into its territory.
