Report: No plan B for south de-escalation between Hezbollah and Hochstein


Sources have told al-Jadeed that Hezbollah is not discussing any plan B with U.S. mediator Amos Hochstein, after reports about such a plan for south Lebanon in case a Gaza ceasefire failed.

"There is no finalized agreement with the Americans except for the clear Lebanese stance on the implementation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1701,” the sources said.

Hochstein on a trip to the region called for "urgent" de-escalation, as cross-border violence killed at least 479 people in Lebanon, most of them fighters but also 93 civilians.

Israeli authorities say at least 15 soldiers and 11 civilians have been killed in the country's north.
