Defense Minister Amir Peretz said Wednesday that Israel would not allow Hizbullah guerrillas to return to their positions along the northern border after the current fighting ends. "We remain adamant that Hizbullah will not return to our northern (border) fence," he told reporters. "We shall absolutely not allow the Hizbullah flag to fly up to Israel's (border) fences." Peretz met Wednesday with EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana.
