An Israeli government official said that Israel plans to withdraw from the northern area of a disputed village of Lebanon.
The official spoke on condition of being anonymous because Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister won’t present the plan to withdraw from Ghajar, the village, to Ban Ki-moon, the United Nations chief until Monday.
A border demarcated by the UN in 2000 split Ghajar village between Lebanon and the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights. Israel has occupied all of Ghajar village since its war with Hezbollah in 2006.
Benjamin Netanyahu plans to bring the plan before a deciding inner Cabinet next week. Israel vowed to leave Ghajar under the United Nations resolution ending the 2006 war.
