Breaking: despite the cease-fire, Israel "confiscated" Hizbollah weapons materials in Lebanon (from Ynet)

The link is in Hebrew, but it just came out: IDF forces have "confiscated" rockets near a south-eastern village in Lebanon. Edited to add: Here is the story in English.

It has also "confiscated" a truck purportedly carrying rockets.

A "senior officer" stated that despite the cease fire, the Israeli army was instructed not to permit the smuggling of weapons material from Syria to Lebanon.

Edited to add: blog reports are mentioning that various people who had been called up - have been brought back to behind Israel's borders. Withdrawal has started, and will probably be quite swift, what with the absence of food, water, body armor, and other equipment among the Israeli forces over the border.
