Things are getting worse….. in Lebanon

When Israel starts passing warnings ABOUT POSSIBLE TERRORIST HITS AGAINST HIZBULLAH to Hizbullah via the Tripartite mtgs you know things are getting very very bad.

From DS:

“According to diplomatic sources, at the tripartite session in Naqoura on May 11, a monthly meeting that groups together the UNIFIL commander and senior Lebanese and Israeli army officers, the Israeli representative warned that extremists in the Ain al-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp in Sidon were planning attacks against UNIFIL, the Lebanese Army and Hezbollah. The Israelis occasionally pass on general security threats they have picked up to UNIFIL and the Lebanese Army, while usually keeping the details to themselves so as not to betray the source of the information. But diplomats were surprised that the Israelis chose to include Hezbollah in the warning. Whether Hezbollah’s recent security measures stemmed from the Israeli warning and the UNIFIL attack or were prompted by the party’s own intelligence sources is unclear.”
