JERUSALEM, Aug 13 (Reuters): Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's cabinet on Sunday approved a United Nations Security Council resolution calling for a cessation of hostilities with Hizbollah guerrillas in Lebanon, a political source said.
UN Secretary General Kofi Annan had said the prime ministers of Israel and Lebanon agreed the fighting would end Monday at 8 am (0500 GMT).
Olmert had urged the cabinet to accept the UN resolution.
All but one of the cabinet voted for the resolution that was approved by the Security Council on Friday to end a month-old war that has killed over 1,060 people in Lebanon and 140 Israelis. Shaul Mofaz, the former defense minister, abstained.
The resolution envisages a phased withdrawal of Israeli troops from southern Lebanon when violence subsides and deployment of 15,000 Lebanese troops and 15,000 U.N. peacekeepers.
Hostilities began on July 12 when Hizbollah guerrillas captured two Israeli soldiers and killed eight in a cross-border raid, then unleashed rocket fire at northern Israel after Israel launched an aerial offensive in Lebanon.
Despite the resolution, Israel has expanded its offensive in south Lebanon, tripling its forces there on Saturday in a bid to wipe out Hizbollah rocket launch sites before the ceasefire takes effect.
Nearly 30,000 troops were operating against Hizbollah targets in southern Lebanon on Sunday.
AFP adds: The Israeli offensive on Lebanon has killed at least 1,130 people, including 1,000 civilians, and has wounded 3,600 others in four weeks, according to an AFP count based on official sources.
At least 1,025 civilians, a third of them children under the age of 12, and 31 Lebanese soldiers died since the start of the offensive on July 12, the government High Relief Commission (HRC) said.
The Lebanese Shiite party Hezbollah said 61 of its fighters had died during the fighting, while its allied Amal movement said it lost seven fighters.
The pro-Syrian Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine General Command (PFLP-GC) said that one of its fighters died during the offensive, according to the group's head Ahmed Jibril.
Four United Nations observers were also killed, as well as a member of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL).
Israel's military campaign has also displaced 915,792 people, including 220,000 who left the country, according to the HRC.
That figure includes 100,000 foreigners or dual nationals who were evacuated, according to an AFP count
