Military aid for Lebanon hangs in balance


Recommended Posts


The U.S. administration wants to resume military aid, frozen by Congress in August, to Lebanon's armed forces amid suspicions Iranian-backed Hezbollah has heavily infiltrated Lebanese military intelligence.

So far, with Syria reasserting its power over Lebanon once more, there's no sign Congress will relent.

The pro-Israeli lobby claims that U.S. arms provided to the Lebanese military could end up in the hands of Hezbollah in its fight against the Jewish state.

Also, Lebanon is gripped by a potentially explosive crisis between political forces led by Prime Minister Saad Hariri, backed by the West and Saudi Arabia, and Hezbollah, supported and armed by Iran and Syria.
