An Israeli aircraft detonated the car bomb that killed two officials of a Palestinian terror group in south Lebanon last month, Lebanese Defense Minister Elias Murr said Thursday. The government has decided to complain to the UN Security Council about Israeli attacks in Lebanon, Information Minister Ghazi Aridi said following a Cabinet meeting that heard the defense minister's report. Murr briefed the Cabinet on the May 26 car bombing that killed Mahmoud Majzoub, a senior Islamic Jihad official, and his brother as they walked out of their home in the southern city of Sidon. Both men were Lebanese citizens.
