US: Israel OK's 48-Hr Halt Of Aerial Operations Over S Lebanon

What this report really says is that Israel intends to carry on but will blame anything else in the next 48-hours on someone else, sound familiar?

AP - Israel agreed to a 48-hour suspension of aerial activity over southern Lebanon after its heart-wrenching bombing of a Lebanese village on Sunday that killed a number of children.

The attack marred Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's week-long mission to halt the fighting between Israel and Hezbollah.

The suspension of overflights was announced by State Department spokesman Adam Ereli. He said Israel has reserved the right to attack targets if it learns that attacks are being prepared against them.

"The United States welcomes this decision and hopes that it will help relieve the suffering of the children and families of southern Lebanon," Ereli told reporters traveling with Rice.
