Israel uses Napalm in its attacks on south Lebanon
Lebanon-Israel, Military, 10/16/1998
Israeli occupation forces continued their attacks on areas adjacent to the occupied part of south Lebanon, using various types of heavy weapons including internationally-banned phosphorous Napalm shells, which have started fires in Lebanese woods, farms and plantations.
Lebanese security sources said that the Israeli heavy artillery positioned in the al-Sayyad, Muheibib, and al-Teiba positions bombarded the towns of Toulin, Qabriha, Farroun, and al-Ghandourieh, as well as al-Salawqi valley, Wadi al-Hajir, and Litani river course. The bombardment was accompanied by intensive flights by the Israeli AMK reconnaissance planes over the central and western sectors of south Lebanon.
In retaliation to the Israeli use of the internationally banned phosphorous Napalm shells in setting fires in south Lebanese woods and farms, the Lebanese resistance said in a statement that its forces attacked early Thursday the occupation position in Berket Recht on the Lebanese-Palestinian borders in the occupied part of south Lebanon, saying that direct hits were scored.
On Thursday night, Lebanese resistance forces attacked the occupation and Israeli-allied militia positions in al-Qasir and Sala in the occupied part of south Lebanon.
In a statement, the Lebanese resistance said that resistance forces confronted the occupants of the al-Qasir position and were able to destroy the position's western fortifications.
