Lebanon-Israel, Military, 5/10/1999
Israeli occupation forces on Sunday shelled the hills of south Lebanon's al-Tuffah district and the areas close to al-Litani, al-Zahrani and Haboush rivers, Lebanese security sources said. Further reports from south Lebanon said that Lebanese resistance sources reported that the pro-Israeli South Lebanon Army militia moved its location from the entrance Mourn town in Jezzine area to the main square in the town. The 400-meter movement back from the previous location was due to repeated strikes by Lebanese resistance forces, the Lebanese sources said.

Meanwhile, Lebanese security sources said that Israeli heavy artillery stationed in the Abu Qanha and Ahmadeyah locations shelled the surroundings of Meidoun, Meshaerfeh, Ein al-Tineh and Jabbour towns.
