Now in the past few days we have been witnessing another upsurge in terrorist activities against the security zone (as Israel calls its southern Lebanon enclave),' he said in Marjayoun, Israel's headquarters in Lebanon. Yesterday Marjayoun came under rocket attacks, and a woman and her four children were wounded, according to hospital officials.
CAIRO - The Israeli Foreign Minister, Shimon Peres, said yesterday he and the Palestine Liberation Organisation chairman, Yasser Arafat, had made progress in an hour of talks in Cairo on the deadlock over Palestinian self-rule in the Gaza Strip and Jericho, Reuter reports.
