As part of the IDF's operation against Hizballah to stop the rocket barrages against Israel, the IDF dropped leaflets intending to warn the Lebanese civilian population to stay clear of areas from which rockets are launched against Israel, as these will be targeted by the IDF and civilians present in those areas are endangering their lives.
The leaflets also stress that any pickup truck or truck traveling south of the Litani river will be considered suspect of transporting weapons and rockets, and is a potential target for the IDF, as this is the region most heavily used for the launching of rockets into Israel.
The IDF is operating with great caution in order to prevent any harm to uninvolved civilians. However, southern Lebanon is a combat zone in which Hizballah terrorists operate against Israeli civilians from within the civilian Lebanese population, using them as human shields.
The IDF's operation will continue until security is restored to the citizens of Israel.
