How many Israelis are left in Lebanon?

I always retain a bit of skepticism about things that Robert Fisk writes. Nonetheless, I pass this observation from his latest article on for what it's worth:
Last night, scarcely any Israeli armour was to be seen inside Lebanon - just one solitary tank could be glimpsed outside Bint Jbeil and the Israelis had retreated even from the "safe" Christian town of Marjayoun. It is now clear that the 30,000-strong Israeli army reported to be racing north to the Litani river never existed. In fact, it is unlikely that there were yesterday more than 1,000 Israeli soldiers left in all of southern Lebanon.
