HEZBOLLAH JUST KEEPS WINNING:

Israel Considers Pullout From Lebanon Village (Javno, 5/03/09)

Israel's Haaretz newspaper said the United States was pressing Netanyahu for a pullout from Ghajar, which straddles the border between Lebanon and territory Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war. [...]

Israel annexed Ghajar in 1981 along with the occupied Golan Heights in a move that has not won international recognition.

A pullout from Ghajar could also open a broader debate about the nearby Shebaa Farms, a stretch of territory controlled by Israel that Lebanon claims as its own but which the United Nations recognises as belonging to Syria.
