  • Description

    Six people - including three Palestinian guerrillas and a five year-old girl - were killed during a shelling attack on the southern Lebanese town of Nabatiya in the early hours of Thursday morning. (14 November).

    Local residents said sixteen people were wounded and ten buildings destroyed during the 40-minute artillery barrage.

    Lebanese officials said the Israelis fried 25 shells on the town from the border 16 kilometres (10 miles) away. Four of the shells fell in the residential Seraille district.

    An electricity plant in the town was hit and the area was plunged into darkness. Many of the people fled towards the town of Sidon, on the coast.

    The attack was part of continuing Israeli operations which they say are aimed at guerrilla bases in southern Lebanon.

    On the same night Palestinians reported that Israeli commandos were ferried across the border and blew up three houses in the village of Serbin. Israeli guns also shelled other border areas.
