Israeli forces began handing over areas of southern Lebanon to Lebanese army control. Israeli troops and tanks on Wednesday quit the uppermost areas of the zone of conflict that was overrun during Israel’s monthlong war on Hezbollah. Some 15,000 Lebanese troops are expected to move in and establish their control after midnight, allowing for further Israeli troop withdrawals Thursday.
