January 02, 1986

The Israeli-backed South Lebanon Army militia and rival Muslim fighters battled with tanks and artillery 25 miles south of Beirut, and nine combatants were killed, militia sources in Beirut said. According to the sources, the People's Liberation Army, a coalition of Muslim militias and Palestinian guerrillas, fought the Christian-led South Lebanon Army troops east of Sidon for almost a day. Beirut, meanwhile, was largely calm after heavy fighting between Christian factions.
