JERUSALEM (CNN) -- Israel's Security Cabinet recommended Wednesday that the Israeli military expand its campaign against Hezbollah in southern Lebanon.
Israeli ground forces are now authorized to push up to the Litani River, 18 miles (29 kilometers) inside Lebanon, in an attempt to eliminate Hezbollah rocket launchers before any U.N. cease-fire resolution is passed.
Cabinet Minister Eli Yishai told The Associated Press the proposed operation was expected to take 30 days, although a U.N. resolution is expected before then.
