    Israeli gunboats had landed a force before dawn estimated at between 200 and 300 men on the cost just north of Tyre. Five Palestinian commandoes, four Lebanese Army officers and a child died in the fighting and the shelling form the sea.

    The Army officers, all Lieutenants died when the Israeli gunboats shelled Tyre military barracks. Shells hit the officers club.
