In Israeli Border Town, Calm Has Returned Two Years After Lebanon War


Two years ago, war broke out along Israel's border with Lebanon. The conflict known as the Second Lebanon War started after Hezbollah guerrillas attacked an Israeli patrol and seized two Israeli soldiers. On July 14, Hezbollah returned the bodies of the two Israeli soldiers in a prisoner exchange with the Jewish state. No Israeli town was more affected by the war than Metullah, the closest Israeli town to Lebanon. Jim Teeple recently visited the town where many residents say they want a lasting peace with Lebanon.
