ISRAELIS SINK PALESTINIAN BOAT, KILL 2

An Israeli naval patrol sank a Palestinian boat off the southern Lebanese coast Saturday, killing at least two gunmen who the army said planned to raid the Jewish state.

"A Dabor (gunboat) on regular patrol off the Lebanese coast destroyed a terrorist boat heading at a speed of 30 knots with terrorists planning to strike at northern Israel," an army spokeswoman said.The attempt came three days after the United States said it was ending talks with the Palestine Liberation Organization over the PLO's failure to condemn a May 30 attack on an Israeli beach.
