3. SOUNDBITE: (English) Avi Pazner, Israeli government spokesman:
"When there will be a resolution of the United Nations then we will relate to it. For the time being we conduct our operations, we have a lot of work to do. We have to secure this zone, we have still pockets of resistance of the Hezbollah and our operation continues."
Israeli government spokesman, Avi Pazner, on Saturday said Israel's offensive in Lebanon would continue despite a draft UN resolution calling for an end to hostilities between Hezbollah and Israel.
"For the time being we conduct our operations, we have a lot of work to do. We have to secure this zone, we have still pockets of resistance of the Hezbollah and our operation continues," Pazner told AP Television News.
The United States and France agreed on Saturday on a draft UN Security Council resolution that calls for a "full cessation" of fighting between Israel and Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas, but would allow Israel to defend itself if attacked.
The draft "calls for a full cessation of hostilities based upon, in particular, the immediate cessation by Hezbollah of all attacks and the immediate cessation by Israel of all offensive military operations."
That language is a major victory for Israel, which has insisted it must have the right to respond if Hezbollah launches missiles against it.
Hezbollah would have no such right, according to the draft.
