BEIRUT, Lebarton {AP) - Israeli jets di~~~.o~bed Pales.tinian guerrilla bases. in the 'hills east of Beirut Tues- day, setting at least four targets ablaze, police said. The raid carne one day after Israel massed troops along the border with Lebanon in an apparent warning to Shiite Moslem guerillas to-cease their attacks in se>utb, Lebanon, near Israel. The border situation was quiet Tuesday. Police said huge clouds· of smoke billowed from the bluffs of ~ayssour, Keyfoun, Eitat and Shimlan, 12 miles east of Beirut, after strikes that began at 5:30p.m. It was the lOth Israeli air raid in Lebanon this year. · Israel's military co·mmand in Te! Aviv said all planes returned safely and reported hitting bases used for attacks on Israel by the Abu Moussa guerrilla faction and the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Tile Abu Moussa group said no Palestinians were killed or 'injured. Police said two militiamen from Druse warlord Walid Jumblatt's Progressive Socialist Party, which con- trols Lebanon's central mountains, were wounded. The party is allied with Palestinian guerrilla groups backed by Syria. The Israeli planes made at least four bombing runs in 40 .minutes with eight jets taking part in each sortie~ police said. The pilots released red balloons that distracted the guerrillas' shoulder-fired, heat-seeking SA-7 missiles. .· Fugitive on the run WRIGHT CITY, Mo. (AP) - A fugitive who allegedly killed two people and abducted several others during a three-state rampage eluded a dragnet Tuesday, and authorities said a third slaying might be the work of the same gunman, Some residents of this small town kept their doors lock- ed and their .guns loaded, as more than 100 heavily armed offic-ers using dogs and helicopters conducted the hunt for Mi-chael W. Jackson, 41, of Indianapolis. Jackson had vowed not to be taken alive, the In- dianapolis Star said. He was believed to be armed with a sawed•off shotgun and a pistol. · · . Missouri Highway Patrol Capt. John Ford said there h.ad been few leads, but said authorities suspected Jackson was still in the area because there had been no reports of st()len·vehicles and Jackson apparently fled on foot after a ~ _;~attl~ witl\:,~I~at-)10~ice -offi~t~\ . . .. ~·we''Ve: got. notHmg;-but everyone ts sttll out .and that will continue unrifne's -caught or it's determined that he~s otrt of the area,\ Ford said. Officers carrying automatic weapons stopped cars and . searched passing freight trains. A man with an appearance similar to Jackson's was picked·up hitchhiking in the area, but later was cleared and released. Police announced that a man initially thought to have died of head injuries when his car crashed into a light pole along Interstate 70 late Monday in St. Peters, about 20 miles east of Wright City, had actually been shot to death. Investigators said. further examination found that Earl D. Finn, 47 j of O'Fallon, had suffered fatal gunshot wounds to th~;head, said Lt. Mark Grimmer of the St. 1 Peters Police Department.
