Ceasefire?

According to sources in Jerusalem, diplomats of France and the United States are working on a new draft resolution which would lead to a ceasefire in the North - Ynet News says that the resolution could be voted on by the U.N. Security Council as early as tomorrow Friday.

Components of the resolution are said to include:

1. The deployment of genuine military forces, apparently French and German, in southern Lebanon

2. The implementation of Resolution 1559 (but no disarming of Hizballah)

3. Negotiations on a prisoner swap

4. The establishment of a mechanism for future Israeli-Lebanese dealings
