The cabinet on Wednesday morning approved a plan whereby Israel will unilaterally withdraw from the northern part of Ghajar, placing that part of the village in Lebanese hands as mandated by the United Nations.

According to the plan, the IDF will secure the Israel-Lebanon border south of Ghajar, and UNIFIL will be responsibly for preventing the entry of infiltrators, terrorists and criminals in the northern part of the village.

The cabinet was expected to instruct the IDF to accelerate discussions with UNIFIL with the aim of formulating security arrangements within the next month.
