Israel withdraws from border town

Israel is withdrawing from the small town of Ghajar, located along the Lebanese border in the Golan Heights.  As the New York Times story explains,

The Lebanese government and others, including the United States, have been keen to settle the issue of Ghajar, in part to deny Hezbollah any justification for attacking Israel on grounds that it is occupying Lebanese territory.

So follow the link for  a more detailed history of the small town and its people (mostly Alawite).  The article mentions that Israel still has not reached a decision on the deal the United States offered for a 90 day settlement freeze that we covered several days ago.
