Israel: January 30, 2000


Israel made helicopter gunship attacks on suspected Hezbollah  positions in southern Lebanon following the killing, earlier in the day, of Akel Hashem, the second in command of the pro-Israeli South Lebanon militia.

Meanwhile, earlier in the day, two Hezbollah guerillas were killed (by militia troops) while planting bombs in south Lebanon.
