France has sent a letter proposing the cessation of hostilities between Lebanon and Israel, according to Reuters.

France has delivered a written proposal to Beirut aimed at ending hostilities with Israel and settling the disputed Lebanon-Israel frontier, according to a document seen by Reuters that calls for fighters including Hezbollah's elite unit to withdraw 10 km (6 miles) from the border.

The document has been sent to the governments of Israel, Lebanon, and Hezbollah.

The plan envisages Lebanon and Israel ceasing military operations against each other.

Lebanese armed groups will dismantle all buildings and facilities near the border and withdraw their military forces, including elite Hezbollah fighters of Radwan and military assets such as anti-tank systems, at least 10 kilometers north of the border, as proposed in the document.

Up to 15,000 Lebanese army personnel will be stationed in the border area of southern Lebanon, a stronghold of Hezbollah, where the group's fighters have long intertwined with society during periods of calm.

War between Israel and Hezbollah

Earlier, it was reported that Israeli Air Force jets attacked the operational command center of Hezbollah in Lebanon.

According to The Times, Israel may launch a ground war against Hezbollah to push them back 20 kilometers from the borders.
