A draft resolution circulating among UN Security Council members on Saturday would call for an immediate halt to fighting between Israel and Hizbullah and seek a wide new buffer zone in south Lebanon monitored by international forces and the Lebanese army. The proposal, which aims to promote lasting peace between Lebanon and Israel, was sent quietly by France to the other 14 members of the council ahead of a possible meeting of foreign ministers in New York to discuss Lebanon sometime next week. A copy of the draft was obtained Saturday by The Associated Press. The proposal stresses the need "to create the conditions for a permanent cease-fire and a lasting solution to the current crisis between Israel and Lebanon." It emphasizes the need to end the escalating violence, but also "to address urgently the root causes that have given rise to the current crisis.
