  • Description

    The Israeli Chief of Staff, General Mordechai Gur revealed to newsmen on Thursday (27th June) that a close security fence is being set up along Israel's border with Lebanon, to prevent guerrilla attacks. The general also said that Israel's past activity along the border had forced the guerrillas to abandon their positions near the frontier and retreat to the cities and Palestinian refugee camps.

    Even in the south-east corner of Lebanon, known as Fatahland, they had withdrawn, he said. Israel has continued to raid them however, both from the air and with artillery over past months.

    Since April 11th, 51 Israelis, mainly women and children, and 17 guerrillas have been killed in guerrilla attacks. Some 80 people have been wounded and at least two guerrillas have been captured.
