JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel believes it will be entitled to use  
force to prevent Hizbollah from rearming and to clear guerrilla  
positions out of southern Lebanon after a U.N. truce takes effect,  
Israeli officials said on Sunday.
. . .


The truce will mark the end of Israel's offensive operations, senior  
Israeli officials said.

But they said the army would press ahead with operations aimed at  
"clearing out" Hizbollah fighters from areas in southern Lebanon  
where some 30,000 Israeli troops have been deployed ahead of the truce.

A Western diplomat said the United States and other major powers  
would not object to such "mopping up" operations, provided they are  
restricted to the south.
