Israeli jets strike militant base

December 28, 2005


— Israeli jets attacked a Palestinian militant group's training base in southern Lebanon early today, hours after an Israeli border town was hit by rocket fire, the military said.

The base, five miles south of Beirut, is operated by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command, a small group that has been waging a decades-long fight against the Jewish state.

"This is in response to the firing of projectile rockets last night toward Israeli communities," the military said.

There was no word on casualties or damage in the strike.
