The Lebanon government has postponed indefinitely talks on implementing the cease-fire. Disagreements on disarming Hezbollah are a primary reason, according to the BBC.
Robert Fisk: “As the 6am ceasefire takes effect… the real war begins.”
The Israeli army, reeling under the Hizbollah’s onslaught of the past 24 hours, is now facing the harshest guerrilla war in its history. And it is a war they may well lose.
Israel had 40 military deaths Saturday. Olmert is being attacked by political opponents from all sides. Hezbollah, Fisk says, has prepared for years for this, a invasion by Israel allowing Hezbollah to fight them on the ground.
