Lebanese Army On "Full Combat Readiness" At Southern Border To Counter "Israeli Enemy"

Two days after Israel provided the first ever official confirmation of covert ties with Saudi Arabia, a step many analysts see as a precursor to future conflict in the Middle East involving adversaries Iran and Lebanon, on Tuesday the head of the Lebanese Army told the military to be at “full combat readiness” to face “the Israeli enemy” at the country's southern border. The announcement comes as Arab nations, including Saudi Arabia, vow to tighten their grip on Lebanon’s Hezbollah militia.

"The army needs to be prepared to “confront the threats and violations of the Israeli enemy and its hostile intentions against Lebanon,” Joseph Aoun said on Tuesday, while urging the army to cooperate with United Nations forces in Lebanon under UN Security Council Resolution 1701, adopted to resolve the 2006 Israel-Lebanon conflict. The statement came after Lebanese President Michel Aoun said that “Israeli targeting still continues and it is the right of the Lebanese to resist it and foil its plans by all available means,” according to Reuters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It would not surprise me much if both Saudi Arabia and Israel went into Lebanon this weekend, with Americans collectively sedated from all the tryptophane in the turkey they consumed for Thanksgiving, and focused on football and Christmas shopping.

I hope that I am wrong, but I am intuiting a massive buildup in tensions in the Middle East, from the Saudi purge, and the its government's statements that both Lebanon and Iran had begun a war against it.

You cannot keep any army on highest alert for a long period of time without sacrificing energy and awareness of those troops; I suspect that some movement from Israel and/or Saudi Arabia against Lebanon may well be imminent.
