Mohamed Shatah, senior adviser to the Lebanese prime minister, said Lebanese officials were engaged in an "around-the-clock" effort to persuade U.N. Security Council members to address their concerns before the council votes on the resolution, which could come today or Tuesday.Shatah said a major concern is that the resolution, which calls for a "full cessation of hostilities," requires Israel to drop all offensive military actions -- implicitly permitting actions in its own defense.Throughout the current conflict, Israel has claimed it acted in self-defense after Hezbollah kidnapped two Israeli soldiers on July 12. "Defensive action appears to be a description of everything that Israel does," Shatah said.Shatah also said the timeline for a second U.N. resolution authorizing a stronger multinational peacekeeping force in the region was "fuzzy," and that without a force in place immediately the agreement would fall apart.
