Israeli jets, artillery bombard Lebanon border area

BEIRUT, May 28 (Reuters) - Israeli jets and artillery bombarded southern Lebanese border areas on Sunday and its forces exchanged fire with Hizbollah guerrillas.

The Israeli army ordered residents living in northern areas to head for bomb shelters.

Israeli planes also attacked two bases run by a Syrian-backed Palestinian faction in Lebanon, killing one Palestinian fighter, hours after rockets fired into northern Israel wounded an Israeli soldier. Lebanese witnesses said areas near Rmeish, Aita, Yaroun, Mais al-Jabal and Ghajar, towns along different parts of the Lebanese border with Israel, were hit by Israeli aircraft.

The Israeli army said it fired aircraft and artillery rounds at suspected Hizbollah positions in southern Lebanon.

Israel's orders to its residents followed a gun battle between Hizbollah guerrillas and Israeli soldiers near Kibbutz Menara and mortar and rocket fire into northern Israel, Israeli security sources said.

Hizbollah guerrillas also exchanged fire with Israeli forces in the disputed Shebaa Farms border area, witnesses and security sources said.
