The incident at the Ein el-Hilweh refugee camp on the edge of Sidon, 25 miles south of Beirut, came a day after Beirut newspapers reported an anti-Israel demonstration in the camp.

Israeli military sources in Tel Aviv, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said troops entered the camp to carry out ''searches and actions meant to prevent terrorist actions.''
