  • Description

    ISRAEL HAS INCREASED HER SECURITY PATROLS ALONG THE LEBANESE BORDER FOLLOWING TWO NIGHTS OF SHELLING BY FORCES FROM WITHIN THE LEBANON. POLICE WITH ARMOURED CARS NOW PATROL THE BORDER DAY AND NIGHT.

    KIRYAT SHMONA, A TOWN ONLY 2 MILES (3 ???? K.M.) FROM THE LEBANON BORDER SUFFERED ROCKET AND ARTILLERY BOMBARDMENT FOR THE SECOND TIME DURING THE NIGHT OF FRIDAY 3RD. A SECOND SETTLEMENT KFAR YOUVAL, UNDER A MILE (1 KM) FROM LEBANON WAS ALSO SHELLED.

    THE ATTACKS FOLLOW THE RAID ON BEIRUT AIRPORT LAST WEEK BY ISRAELI COMMANDOS, PREVIOUSLY THE BORDER HAD BEEN QUIET.

    DEFENCE MINISTER MOSHE DAYAN VISITED THE AREA DURING THE NIGHT TO REASSURE THE INHABITANTS THAT THE GOVERNMENT WOULD "PUT AN END TO THE SITUATION."
    ISRAEL HAS ALREADY RETURNED THE FIRE AND THE PATROLS HAVE INCREASED TO PREVENT INFILTRATION BY ARAB GUERRILLAS ON SABOTAGE RAIDS.
