Four aircraft fired 10 air-to-ground rockets at the hilltop bases on the outskirts of the village of Bchamoun, sending black smoke into the skies. The sound of the exploding rockets thundered across the countryside and were heard in Beirut.Bchamoun, 7 miles southeast of Beirut, is under the control of the pro-Syrian Progressive Socialist Party militia. Syrian troops and Palestinian guerrillas maintain positions and bases in the area surrounding the village.
