The IDF allowed 400 Lebanese security forces, trapped in Majayoun as a result of fire exchanges between Israel and Hizbullah, to leave the village.
A senior officer from IDF's Northern Command stated that the Lebanese forces appealed to the UN for help leaving the area. In response, the IDF agreed, although said that the Lebanese forces would be checked before moving north, to ensure that there were no Hizbullah terrorists among them. Earlier, it was reported that UN soldiers arrived at the village to assist Lebanese forces. (Hanan Greenberg)
