Israeli planes raid Palestinian positions near Beirut

Israeli warplanes carried out an air raid against positions of a radical Palestinian group some 20 kilometres (12 miles) south of the Lebanese capital, a Palestinian official told AFP. In Israel, security sources said the planes raided a “terrorist target” just outside Beirut. The planes fired two missiles at disused positions of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC) on the Mediterranean coast at Naameh, a PFLP-GC official said. “We don’t know exactly what was targeted,” he said. The Israeli sources said the targeted site was used by the PFLP-GC, which is led by Ahmed Jibril. The air strike was apparently in response to an earlier mortar attack which Israel said targeted one of its naval vessels patrolling in Israeli territorial waters. Full Story
