Refugees stream back to southern Lebanon

TYRE, Lebanon (CNN) -- Thousands of civilians forced from their homes by 34 days of fighting poured back into war-ravaged southern Lebanon Monday, hoping that a fragile cease-fire would not crumble.

About 10 rockets were fired inside southern Lebanon late Monday, the Israeli military said early Tuesday. The Israel Defense Forces initially said the weapons were Katyushas -- which are commonly used by Hezbollah -- but have since stepped back from that.

The rockets landed inside Lebanese territory, and Israeli forces will not respond to their firing, a military spokesman said.

Earlier, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said the cease-fire agreement -- which went into effect at 8 a.m. local time (1 a.m. ET) -- "appears to be generally holding."

That was despite four clashes between Israeli forces and Hezbollah fighter

i wonder how long this so called peace will holdSad
