After a military flare-up between Israel and Hezbollah yesterday left two Israeli soldiers and a Spanish peacekeeper dead, U.N. channels announced Hezbollah is letting the situation rest. Israel also agreed to the temporary truce while remaining "prepared for any development," meaning there won’t be another war along Syria’s already-volatile borders, at least for now.
