  • Description

    Israeli air and ground forces attacked southern Lebanon for the third day running on Sunday(27 February).

    In Tel Aviv the Israelis said their fighter-bombers had flown strikes against Arab guerrilla headquarters and ground forces had crossed the border to silence sources of firing. But the Fatah guerrillas in Lebanon accused them of killing six children and wounding ten other inhabitants when Israeli jets attacked a refugee camp 15 miles (25 kms) north of the border.

    The continuing Israeli strikes in different sectors of Lebanon following the heavy air and land attacks of Friday(25 February) were seen by observers in Tel Aviv as underlining Israel's determination to protect its northern frontier villages at all costs.
