A Temporary End to the Fighting?
This just in: the US and France reached agreement on a Security Council resolution to end fighting between Israel and Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas, U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said. An official with knowledge of the talks, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the draft calls for a "full cessation of violence" between Israel and Hezbollah, but would allow Israel the right to launch strikes if Hezbollah attacks it.
The draft Franco-American ceasefire resolution "'does not say immediate cessation of violence,' said the official, who spoke anonymously because the draft had not yet been made public. That appeared to be a major victory for the U.S. and Israel." according to the AP.
