Israel To Cede Positions

From Reuters:

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Israeli forces prepared to make way for U.N. peacekeepers in some parts of south Lebanon and withdraw more troops on Wednesday as a truce with Hizbollah guerrillas entered its third day.

Israeli officials said the plan was for the U.N. force, known as UNIFIL, to deploy over the next two days in some Israeli positions not seen by the army as strategically crucial.

At the same time, Israeli officials said, the Lebanese army should begin shifting to the Litani River in southern Lebanon, and then slowly move southward as the Israeli army pulls back.
