Israelis hit by series of attacks near Sidon

An explosion slightly damaged an Israeli military truck Tuesday in what appeared to be the latest of a series of attacks on the Israeli Army here, Lebanese security sources said.

The Israelis surrounded the area, imposed a curfew, arrested at least 10 people, and forced local shops to close as they searched buildings. An Israeli unit also raided the town of Ghaziyeh, south of Sidon, arresting seven people, including the local leader of the Shiite Muslim organization Amal. Until the Israeli invasion last summer, Sidon was the site of the Palestine Liberation Organization and Lebanese leftist joint command.
