Israeli troops and militiamen of the South Lebanon Army on Sunday killed two Palestinian guerrillas and captured two others in a shoot-out in southern Lebanon, an army spokesman said. The patrol spotted four guerrillas before dawn inside Israel's self-proclaimed security zone near the village of Marjayoun, a few miles north of the Israeli border, and opened fire. There were no reported casualties among the Israeli or Lebanese troops. "A preliminary investigation established that the terrorists intended to carry out an attack on a northern settlement to kill Israelis," the army spokesman said, adding that the guerrillas carried Soviet-made Kalashnikov assault rifles, a grenade launcher, two American-made anti-tank rockets, wire cutters and explosives.
