Israeli warplanes raided targets in southern Lebanon on Friday (11 November) for the second time in three days.
Israeli warplanes raided targets in southern Lebanon on Friday (11 November) for the second time in three days. Early reports said 12 people had been killed. The area hit was south of the port city of tyre. The 15-minute raid came as rescue workers were still recovering bodies from the ruins of a nearby village where at least 60 Lebanese civilians were killed by bombs from Israeli aircraft on Wednesday (9 November). As on previous occasions the Israeli raids followed a rocket attack against an Israeli settlement across the border from Lebanon. In the Lebanese capital of Beirut on Friday, a spokesman for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Mr. Bassem Abou Sherif, spoke about the Israeli raids. The PFLP is the main group in the so-called "Rejectionist Group", which rejects any negotiations with Israel on the Palestine question.
