The World

Thousands of Israelis demonstrated in Tel Aviv's central square in favor of immediate and complete withdrawal from Lebanon. Organizers estimated the crowd at 40,000. The demonstration came hours after the army chief of staff said he sees no need to expedite withdrawal despite guerrilla attacks that killed 14 Israeli soldiers in southern Lebanon last week. The army has begun the second stage of its withdrawal and is expected to complete the pullout by fall.
