Speaking to the Mirror, Dr Andreas Krieg, Associate Professor of Security Studies at King's College London, explained: "If they want to reengage, they will. As soon as they make a decision to go back in. After all its only a few km to the Israeli border, they can just reengage. So its not a major turning point in the war."

Obviously airstrikes still continue. Drones are constantly in the air, if they want to take someone out from there, they will do it. You don't need boots on the ground to do it. And most people killed already weren't from boots on the ground but from the air. So you don't need these troops on the ground to create havoc and kill people.
