Tel Aviv, Israel, May 17 (AP)-Israel’s army said Monday it has struck seven miles into Lebanon and destroyed a strategic bridge. It declared also that the Arab city of Acre, 12 miles south of the Lebanese-Palestine frontier, “is expected to surrender at any moment.”

Planes bombed Tel Aviv for the third successive day. Haganah, the army, said several bombs were dropped at 5 a. m. The attack appeared aimed at the port area by a light or medium bomber and one other plane. At least ten persons were killed from the air on Saturday and Sunday.

Moshe Shertok, foreign minister, acknowledged heavy Arab pressure in the northeast and south. The Egyptians were pressing into the Neges, or southern desert, and the Iraqi army was striking in the northern Jordan valley, he said.
