But the retreat beyond the Litani River of Hezbollah, one of the world’s most heavily armed non-state entities, which has declared on many occasions its open intention to invade the Galilee, has been violated in more cases than reported.

“We are fully ready to commit to implementation, provided that the Israeli side does the same and withdraws from the occupied territory – in accordance with international laws and resolutions,” Mikati’s statement said. The area he is referring to is Mount Dov, also known as the Shebaa Farms, the hills of Kfar Jouba and the Lebanese side of Ghajar village. Meanwhile, Hezbollah announced that 121 members of its group have been killed since it began its attacks on Israel.
