Leaflets handed out on highways as refugees return to their homes.
By JERUSALEM POST STAFF
Hizbullah distributed leaflets on Monday congratulating Lebanon on its "big victory" and thanking citizens for their patience during the 34-day war with Israel.
Supporters of the terror group were seen passing out leaflets to cars heading south on the Zahrani highway, which connects the hard-hit southern cities of Nabatiyeh, Tyre and Sidon.
"Congratulations to you on the big victory, with the support of God, the mujahedeen (holy warriors) and your patience," it read.
The flyers also warned people not to touch any suspicious objects, which could be unexploded ordnance.
Meanwhile, thousands of cars flooded Lebanon's bombed out highways heading south within an hour of a UN cease-fire taking hold, and Lebanese army troops scrambled to repair roads in time for the deluge of refugees returning home.
The IDF called on residents of southern Lebanon not to return home until an international force completes its deployment in the region.
Thousands of Lebanese headed south on Monday after the cease-fire went into effect.
Cars packed with luggage, some with mattresses strapped to the roof, sat in a traffic jam more than a kilometer long on the Zahrani highway, which links the southern cities of Nabatiyeh, Tyre and Sidon.
Four or five lines of cars were forced to merge into one lane because of damage to the road.
