  • Description

    Israeli security forces on Tuesday (29 October) killed three Arab commandoes near the Lebanese border with Israel.

    The three had apparently penetrated the security screen along the Lebanese border during the night.

    They were killed about midday near Kibbutz Yiftah. It is near the town of Kiryat Shemoneh where 18 people were killed during a guerrilla attack last April.

    This was the first contact between security forces and guerrillas since massive searches began in Northern Israel more than two weeks ago for between five and eight guerrillas who apparently infiltrated near Adamit in Western Galilee.

    The searches involved infantry and border police backed by helicopters, spotter aircraft and sea patrols.

    The stepped up guerrilla activity is apparently timed to coincide with the Arab summit conference in Rabat.

    The three commandoes were killed in an ambush during what has been described as one of the biggest security operations ever mounted in northern Israel.

    SYNOPSIS: Aircraft, troops and police scoured the country around the Lebanese border.

    Gunboats checked the coastline.

    The intense security operation began when the Israelis received reports that up to eight guerrillas had penetrated their border fences and patrols.
