"The IDF is satisfied with its coordination with the Lebanese army and UNIFIL," a senior army official said on Wednesday night. The official said that in accordance with the Lebanese army's request, Israel was operating in order to establish a partition between Lebanon and Israel. "At this stage we are closely monitoring the organization of Hizbullah in southern Lebanon," he added, stressing that it was the task of Lebanese and UNIFIL forces to prevent Hizbullah guerillas from moving freely in the region. The official went on to say that the IDF's rules for opening fire were clear and that if troops identified a Hizbullah operative who was putting their lives at risk, they had permission to shoot, Israel Radio reported.
