ISRAELI OFFICIAL CONFIRMS AMBUSH OF MUSLIM LEADER

An Israeli minister confirmed that Israel deliberately conducted the fatal ambush of a top Muslim guerrilla leader in south Lebanon on Friday.

The statement by Housing Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer in an Israel Channel One television interview was a rare departure for Israel, which usually does not acknowledge such operations.

Lebanon sources said earlier that an Israeli helicopter ambushed and killed one of Hezbollah's top leaders, Ruda Yassin, after guerrillas killed an Israeli soldier in an assault on a fortified outpost in Israel's south Lebanon occupation zone.
