Militiamen of the Israeli-backed South Lebanon Army shelled two Shia Muslim villages in Israel’s so-called security zone in south Lebanon and clashed with Muslim forces east of Sidon, security sources said. There was no immediate word on casualties in the shelling of Shaqra and Majdel Selm. Meanwhile, Israeli troops ringed the Lebanese border town of El Tireh and ordered residents to hand over 15 men suspected in rocket attacks on the South Lebanon Army. It was not immediately clear whether the suspects were surrendered to the Israelis.
