The Israeli government is calling on neighbouring Lebanon to open peace talks.
Government spokesman Mark Regev said Wednesday that Israel is interested in "direct, bilateral" talks with Lebanon. He said "every issue of contention" is on the table, including a key border dispute over Chebaa Farms, a small piece of land controlled by Israel.
The dispute over the Chebaa Farms enclave is a key sticking point between Israel, Lebanon and Syria.
Israel invaded Lebanon twice in the last 30 years, in 1982 and again in July 2006.
Wednesday's announcement came amid a flurry of developments in the region. Israeli officials say they are close to a prisoner swap with Hezbollah guerrillas in Lebanon, and Israel also recently opened peace talks with Syria.
Meanwhile, a ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinian group Hamas is set to begin on Thursday.
