What with all the fighting going on in S. Lebanon, I don't think I'd have to wait for the IDF to tell me to leave. Common sense tells you to get out of the line of fire.

Was just watching FOX news on cable, and the reporter was saying Hezbollah fighters have set up road blocks forbidding lebanese citizens from leaving southern Lebanon
The IDF has found that Hizbullah is preventing civilians from leaving villages in southern Lebanon. Roadblocks have been set up outside some of the villages to prevent residents from leaving, while in other villages Hizbullah is preventing UN representatives from entering, who are trying to help residents leave. In two villages, exchanges of fire between residents and Hizbullah have broken out.
Israel to allow humanitarian supplies into Lebanon
Israel's ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Gillerman, said Friday that Israel will allow humanitarian supplies into Lebanon.
Gillerman said he expected a humanitarian corridor for food, medicine and other supplies to be opened later Friday or Saturday.
Israel has imposed an air and sea blockade of Lebanon which has cut off transport links, but has not stopped foreign countries from evacuating their nationals. Israel has come under intense international pressure to get food, medicine and humanitarian aid to the Lebanese people.
