A ceasefire agreement has been stated by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, that if both captured Israeli soldiers and all of Hezbollah forces are controlled with Lebanese military in control of the south all attacks will cease. Israel is still trying to subdue the fighting from attacks from the Hezbollah, and has all intentions to continue until the Hezbollah are abolished. As of now the rocket attacks on Israel have now ceased, and deployment of Lebanese forces is staged across the southern border in action of a ceasefire agreement.
JERUSALEM - Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Monday the fighting in Lebanon would end when the two Israeli soldiers captured by Hezbollah guerrillas were freed, rocket attacks on
Israel were stopped, and the Lebanese army was deployed along the border.
"We are not looking for war or direct conflict, but if necessary we will not be frightened by it," Olmert said.
"We will struggle for the conditions set by the international community," Olmert told the Israeli parliament.
"Return of the hostages ... a full ceasefire, deployment of the Lebanese army in all southern Lebanon and the disarming of Hizbollah."
Delivering an impassioned speech to parliament after six days of fighting with Lebanon, Olmert said Israel would have no mercy on militants who attack its cities with rockets, and he pledged to destroy terrorist infrastructure.
"We shall seek out every installation, hit every terrorist helping to attack Israeli citizens, destroy all the terrorist infrastructure, in every place. We shall continue this until Hezbollah does the basic and fair things required of it by every civilized person," he said in his first major address since the fighting in Lebanon began last week.

Israel seems here to be willing to comply with the U.N. on a no violence statement. Still the U.N. has not replied to the recent statement by the Prime Minister, as of now Israel is looking at having international help in the attacks on their country, and still in Lebanon has had many civilians die from Israeli attacks. The ceasefire agreement would be excellent for both of the countries and the preservation of life. The question is now, will Hezbollah forces be able to be subdued?
Israel will not allow any militants to fire rockets on their country and neither will allow them to go on without being punished. For now Lebanon has reacted with forces being deployed to the border. As of 200 Lebanese civilians and military men are dead and 24 Israelis also dead, there seems to be a pause in the current conflict. Over the six day conflict now there is light of hope for both of the countries and the world can be at ease for now.

Kofi Annan called Monday for the deployment of international forces to stop the bombardment of Israel.
"The blunt reality is that this violence is not going to stop unless we create the conditions for the cessation of violence," Blair said after talks with Annan on the margins of the Group of Eight summit. "The only way is if we have a deployment of international forces that can stop bombardment coming into Israel."
Annan appealed to Israel to abide by international law, spare civilian lives and infrastructure.
He also said that the United Nations was considering evacuation plans for U.N. dependents from Lebanon, while Blair said Britain was looking at the possibility of creating an air bridge for its citizens.

Hezbollah or Hizbollah/Hizbullah (Arabic حزب الله, meaning Party of God) is a governmental and militant Lebanese Islamist group, with a military arm and a civilian arm, founded in 1982 to fight the Israeli Defense Forces who occupied southern Lebanon until the year 2000. Its leader is Hassan Nasrallah.
Hezbollah was "inspired by the success of the Iranian Revolution" and was formed primarily to wage war (both defensive and offensive) against Israel. Hezbollah's political platform has consistently called for the destruction of Israel. The United States and Israel say that Hezbollah has received financial and political assistance, as well as weapons and training, from Iran and Syria. Syria says it supports Hezbollah, but denies supplying it with weapons. Along with the Amal movement, Hezbollah is the main political party and militant organization representing the Shia community, Lebanon's largest religious bloc. Founded with the aid of Iran and funded by it, Hezbollah follows the distinctly Shiite Islamist ideology developed by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran.
