Israel warns of retaliation if troops are attacked

Rafael Eitan said Israel has no intention of starting a war but will strike if attacked. As the weather gets better in Lebanon, diplomats fear the chances for renewed large-scale fighting increase. Meanwhile, unidentified gunmen ambushed an Israeli patrol on a mountain road southeast of Beirut, killing one soldier, the Phalangist radio said.
