The regiments of the army that participated in the Nahr L Bared Battle are now returning to their bases, people are gathered at some places and a lot of people are driving in their cars holding Lebanese army flags, Lebanese flags and sadly some political party flags (One car was just holding a tayyar flag!).

The only TV station that is reporting the return of the army is OTV, other channels are just showing cartoons! OTV also has a very nice slogan on the screen: “September 1st 1920: The Great Lebanon (Loubnan L Kabir), September 2nd 2007: The Greater Lebanon (Loubnan L Akbar).

Here are some pictures from the Antelias-Jal El Dib area I took a couple of minutes ago (as you can see kids are on the streets so TV channels can stop the cartoons and be Lebanese for a while).
