Israel to transfer occupied village

Israel says it is ready to withdraw troops from North Ghajar village and let UN forces take control on behalf of Lebanon

    Israel's cabinet will meet on Wednesday, and is expected to approve a plan which could leave a border village split down the middle.

    Ghajar is currently occupied by Israel but under an agreement with the UN, the northern half could be given to Lebanon.

    As Sherine Tadros explains, it's just the latest twist for the village, which will have had three owners in the past half century.
