Day Thirteen of the April 1996 Aggressions

Local Editor

Heavy Zionist artillery resumed heavy bombardment of villages in the south and western Bekaa, while warships continued targeting passing cars on the coastal road. One car was hit at the Awali Bridge; the three passengers onboard injured in the attack were Muwafac Sayyed, Omar Dali, and a third from al-Baba family.

"Israeli" warships focused their attacks on al-Zahrani area, particularly the stretch between Khayzaran, Adloun and Abu al-Aswad towns, bringing traffic to a complete halt. Meanwhile, a hostile helicopter raid on Samma'aiyeh town injured Hassan Khalil. Elsewhere, Mahmoud Qna'a was wounded during bombardment of the towns of Khirbet Silim and Yatar and the area between Mahrounah and J'wayya.

Shortly after mid-night, hostile aircraft launched three raids on the town of Maaroub, and cut the road leading to the villages of Bint Jbeil in the central sector.
