Middle East, Hezbollah leader dies.  How war changes

Hezbollah confirmed that its commander Wissam al-Tawil was killed. The Times of Israel reports this. The man reportedly died in an Israeli attack that hit the car he was traveling in in southern Lebanon. Tawil – better known by his nom de guerre “Jawad” – was the head of Radwan’s special unit.

Meanwhile, Lebanon is ready to implement United Nations Security Council Resolution 1701. Lebanese Foreign Minister Abdallah Bou Habib said this, as reported by the Israeli newspaper Haaretz. The resolution, adopted after the July 2006 war between Hezbollah and Israel, states that there should be a demilitarized zone between the Litani River, in Lebanon, and the so-called “Blue Line”, which separates the country from Israel. According to the newspaper, the minister said that Israel “must completely withdraw from all Lebanese territories and put an end to land, sea and air violations.”
