Security cabinet to meet Wed. on war expansion

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is scheduled to convene the security cabinet Wednesday to discuss an expansion of IDF ground operations in south Lebanon. The army's plan includes a push to the Litani River in order to take control of Hizbullah's short-range rocket launching sites. Infrastructure Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer said on Israel Radio Tuesday that the offensive against Hizbullah stood no chance of success without an advance to the Litani.
