Israel Decides Against Expanded Offensive
Israel decides not to expand its 17-day-old offensive in Lebanon, one day after its soldiers suffered their bloodiest day in the battle against Hezbollah.
While deciding against increasing the scope of their offensive in Lebanon, top Israeli Cabinet ministers did order the call up of thousands of additional reserve soldiers.
Nine soldiers were killed Wednesday, and two dozen were wounded, in two Lebanese towns near Israel's northern border.
