Israel withdraws from southern Lebanon.
What is not mentioned is that they withdraw in defeat….
The so-called “most powerful military in the Middle East” were sent backing by a bunch of ill-armed resistance fighters.
Hail Hizbullah! Hail the victory over the Zionist entity!
Israel withdraws from Lebanon
Sunday 01 October 2006,
The Israeli army has completed its withdrawal from southern Lebanon, Israeli security sources have said.
Israeli security sources said that the last Israeli tanks and troops left through the border post of Zarit – close to where two Israeli soldiers were abducted by Hezbollah fighters in a cross-border raid on July 12 – early on Sunday.
The final phase of the withdrawal began late on Saturday, just before Yom Kippur – the holiest day in the Jewish calendar – which started at dusk on Sunday.
Commenting on the withdrawal, Lebanese officials said that Major-General Alain Pellegrini, the commander of the UN peacekeepers in Lebanon, had informed Fouad Siniora, the Lebanese prime minister, that Israel planned to complete its withdrawal by Sunday.
Israel had already pulled out most of the 10,000 troops who entered Lebanon during the 34-day war and only a few hundred remained by the weekend.
A UN resolution led to a ceasefire that took hold on August 14.
