"Ceasefire": Fighting Slows But Israel Still Threatens To Bomb Relief Convoys
August 14th "Ceasefire"
Guns fell silent across southern Lebanon on Monday morning as a United Nations ceasefire came into effect. Thousands of Lebanese civilians, displaced by the Israeli bombardment, have started heading home to Southern Lebanon. It is not clear if the refugees will be able to make it home since Israel's military has "said traffic restrictions south of the Litani River had not been lifted" Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has also said that despite the ceasefire (and the demand that Hezbollah disarm), Israel will continue to try to assassinate Hezbollah leaders.
