Israeli warplanes raided a Palestinian refugee camp near this southern port city on Saturday, killing at least four people and wounding six others, police said.

A police spokesman said at least two planes struck the tiny Shabreeha refugee camp, three miles northeast of Tyre and 121/2 miles north of the Israeli border.The spokesman, who cannot be identified in line with standing regulations, said the fighter bombers fired five missiles on the camp.

"It was so swift that anti-aircraft guns had no chance to fire at the raiding jets," he said.

Israel's army command said in a statement that the raid was aimed at bases used for terrorist attacks.
