Israel will hand over its side of the village of Ghajar to UN forces, Reuters News Agency reported on Sunday evening. According to the report, the decision to pull out of the village was made during the cabinet meeting earlier Sunday. Ghajar has posed a major security dilemma for the country since Israel withdrew from Lebanon in 2000, and based on a 1974 map, a UN team determined that the international border between Israel and Lebanon ran directly through the middle of the town. At the time, Israel agreed with the demarcation because it wanted UN and international recognition that it had withdrawn from Lebanon. Yaakov Katz contributed to this report.
