The IDF pulled its ground forces out of Bint Jbeil Saturday all the way back into Galilee.
They fought there for days to take the town, lost some men and then started house demolitions.
According to my Israeli sources, Hizbullah counter-attacked in strength starting Friday night. The next day Israel withdrew from the town.
It sounds like the politicians couldn’t stand the prospect of real war. Or, more fancifully the IAF has laid an elaborate trap for HA. Some of the members of our seminar will prefer that idea.
