The IDF decided to send the Givati Brigade, which has been operating in the Gaza Strip, to the North on Tuesday to beef up forces in preparation for the expected massive incursion into Lebanon on Wednesday. The ministers are expected to approve a push north toward the Litani River at the cabinet meeting set for Wednesday. The move is meant to take over Katyusha launch sites and push the launchers out of range.
