The Lebanese army called up reserve soldiers Monday in a move apparently linked to a possible deployment of about 15,000 troops on the border with Israel to end more than four weeks of fighting between Hizbullah guerrillas and Israeli forces. Prime Minister Fuad Saniora has proposed that Lebanese troops deploy in the south quickly, with the backing of a beefed-up UN force, so that the Israeli military can withdraw as part of any cease-fire deal. Lebanon is pressing for the United States to accept the arrangement and work it into a draft UN resolution on a cease-fire. So far, the draft prepared by the US and France only calls for a halt in fighting, leaving Israeli forces still in the south until a more powerful UN force can be deployed.
