30. Arab League/Lebanese Demands (from CNN):

Below is the plan supported by the Arab League and most parties in Lebanon, including Hezbollah, which they want incorporated into the draft resolution:

An immediate and comprehensive cease-fire and a declaration of agreement on the following issues:

# An undertaking to release the Lebanese and Israeli prisoners and detainees through the International Committee of the Red Cross.

# The withdrawal of the Israeli army behind the "Blue Line" and the return of the displaced to their villages.

# A commitment from the Security Council to place the Shebaa Farms area and the Kfarshouba Hills under U.N. jurisdiction until border delineation and Lebanese sovereignty over them are fully settled. While in U.N. custody, the area will be accessible to Lebanese property owners there. Further, Israel surrenders all remaining land mine maps in south Lebanon to the U.N.

# The Lebanese government extends its authority over its territory through its own legitimate armed forces, such that there will be no weapons or authority other than that of the Lebanese state as stipulated in the Taef national reconciliation document.

# The U.N. international force, operating in south Lebanon, is supplemented and enhanced in numbers, equipment, mandate and scope of operation, as needed, in order to undertake urgent humanitarian and relief work and guarantee stability and security in the south, so that those who fled their homes can return.

# The U.N., in cooperation with the relevant parties, undertakes the necessary measures to once again put into effect the Armistice Agreement signed by Lebanon and Israel in 1949, and to ensure adherence to the provisions of that agreement, as well as to explore possible amendments to or development of said provisions, as necessary.

# The international community commits to support Lebanon on all levels and to assist it in facing the tremendous burden resulting from the human, social and economic tragedy which has afflicted the country, especially in the areas of relief, reconstruction and rebuilding of the national economy.
