Israel said to stop patroling northern border

Lebanese news site A-Nasra reports that Israeli patrols along the northern border have ceased Sunday morning, as the army nervously anticipates a Hezbollah response following the assassination of arch-terrorist Samir Kuntar, Walla News reports.

There is no official word from the IDF.

Hezbollah mouthpiece Al-Manar says Israel’s lack of confirmation that it carried out the strike is giving Hezbollah a chance to think hard about how it will respond.

“The Israeli authorities are avoiding the direct claim of responsibility, in a bid to give the other side a chance to mull its retaliation choices and in order for this retaliation to be deliberate and well-calculated,” a commentator is quoted saying on the Al-Manar website.
