UN: Ghajar Withdrawal ‘One Step’

 United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon has praised Israel’s planned withdrawal from the village of Ghajar as “an important step” toward Resolution 1701. The withdrawal should be followed by “a process,” he said, while another UN official called for “further concrete steps.”

The UN has pushed Israel to withdraw from the northern half of Ghajar, which it says is on the Lebanese side of the Blue Line. Residents of Ghajar have protested the plan to split their village, and are fighting the impending withdrawal.
