Nabatiyeh (Reuter) - Israeli aircraft raided suspected guerrilla targets in south Lebanon last night shortly after a guerrilla attack on two Israeli army posts, guerrilla and pro-Israeli militia sources said.

A Hizbollah spokesman in Beirut said the air attack targeted the Jabal Sojoud area in Iqlim al-Toufah ridge, which is used by the pro-Iranian guerrillas to attack Israeli forces occupying a border zone to the south. About 1,000 Israeli troops hold the south Lebanon zone, set up by Israel in 1985 to protect its northern border area from guerrilla raids.
