The IDF will not fully withdraw from southern Lebanon before Rosh Hashana, IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz said Wednesday, retracting a statement he made on Tuesday to the opposite effect. "We hoped that the withdrawal would happen by Friday, but there are dialogues that need to continue with the Lebanese army and UNIFIL until after the holiday," Halutz told reporters during a toast for the New Year, which comes in on Friday night.
