ZAHRANI, Lebanon, AP -Hezbollah 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 guerrilla 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.

Israeli warplanes occasionally blanketed leaflets over large swaths of Lebanon during the monthlong war. On Monday, Israeli planes dropped leaflets on central Beirut, warning it would retaliate for any attack launched against it from Lebanon after the cease-fire.
