Lebanon's defense minister Elias Murr said he was certain Hizbullah would not break the cease-fire but warned Palestinian groups of harsh measures and a traitor's fate if they incited Israeli retaliation by launching rockets into the Jewish state on Sunday. Defense Minister Elias Murr's strong warning to Palestinians indicated concern that Syrian-backed Palestinian militants might try to restart the fighting by drawing retaliation from Israel. He insisted Hizbullah would hold its fire. "We consider that when the resistance (Hizbullah) is committed not to fire rockets, then any rocket that is fired from the Lebanese territory would be considered collaboration with Israel to provide a pretext (for Israel) to strike," he said.
