Israeli warplanes struck Palestinian targets near the south Lebanese port of Sidon on Thursday, reportedly killing at least eight people and wounding 20. The attack was carried out two hours after a Katyusha rocket, fired from Lebanon, exploded in the yard of a high school in northern Israel, injuring three students and a teacher. Security sources here claimed there was no connection between the two incidents.

Nine Palestinians were killed in the day's fighting. The rocket landed harmlessly on the northern outskirts of the coastal city of Ashkelon.

One of the State Department's top Middle East experts has touched off a diplomatic flap by saying Israel's 1982 bombing of Beirut could be called terrorism and that some Palestinian actions against Israel could be labeled legitimate resistance. The Israeli Embassy demanded a formal explanation and was told that those are not the U.S. government's views, embassy spokesman Yossi Gal said. The controversial comments were made by Gordon S.

The residents of Kiryat Shemona and other northern Israeli towns should sleep peacefully tonight. They can expect to walk their streets Sunday without the threat of Katyusha rockets raining down on them from Hezbollah guerrillas across the border in Lebanon. But this calm came dearly to Israel.

Israeli jets attacked Palestinian refugee camps outside Sidon today, killing 10 people and wounding 22, police said. The attack came 90 minutes after a rocket exploded in a northern Israeli schoolyard, slightly injuring five people. Guerrillas in the Ein el Hilwa and Miye ou Miya refugee camps and the nearby hilltop village of Siroubieh unleashed barrages of SA-7 anti-aircraft missiles at the Israeli fighter-bombers.

The Israeli Army announced late Saturday that it has ended a massive search in southern Lebanon for two soldiers captured by guerrillas and that its troops were pulling back to a self-proclaimed "security zone" along the international border. "There were no clues any more for the search, so there was no reason to stay there," said an army spokesman. Timur Goksel, the spokesman for U.N. peacekeeping forces in the region, confirmed that Israeli units were moving south.

Israeli warplanes bombed suspected Palestinian guerrilla targets in four villages in the Shouf mountains southeast of Beirut on Tuesday, inflicting damage and triggering huge fires. One civilian was reported injured. The raid came shortly after Israeli Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin completed a tour of the Israeli-declared "security zone" in southern Lebanon, vowing to help Israel's militia allies, which are facing increasing attacks by Shia Muslim fighters.
OPINION
February 17, 1985 | Dan Fisher, Dan Fisher is The Times' correspondent in Jerusalem.
A week ago today at 6:30 a.m., Yehuda Toval and Yitzhak Bareli brought home an unmistakable message that all Israel wanted desperately not to hear. Even as scores of Israelis were being killed and wounded by guerrilla fighters, most of them Shia Muslims, in the western part of South Lebanon, many Israelis wanted to believe that with completion of the first stage of the army's withdrawal, scheduled for tomorrow, the bloodletting was nearing an end.

A Katyusha rocket fired from Lebanon landed in northern Israel on Saturday but caused no casualties, a military spokesman said. "It was part of a whole barrage of Katyushas fired at the security zone in south Lebanon," the spokesman said. "One fell in Galilee, but we are sure it was meant for the security zone." U.N. peacekeepers say there have been more than 50 attacks this month on Israelis and the Israeli-backed South Lebanon Army militia in the Israeli-controlled zone north of the border.

The Katyusha bombardment rockets that have been falling on Israel these last few days do not grow in Lebanon. Hezbollah is financed by Iran, but all its weapons come from Syrian territory. In practice, Syrian leader Hafez Assad supplies a limited number of Katyusha rockets to Hezbollah when he wants to put pressure on Israel for one reason or another. He has been doing so again this past week.

As diplomatic efforts intensified to end the conflict in Lebanon, Israeli jet fighters Monday carried out a fiery attack on the second power station in the capital in two days, plunging this city into darkness and reminding the demoralized populace of its suffering during the country's 15-year civil war.
