A “new” turn in gathering terror threat in Lebanon: Targeting Western interests/sites

This is not new of course – this week marks the 32nd anniversary of the US embassy attack in downtown Beirut – not to mention many plots disrupted, some successful etc.

This story in Akhbar – posted here in Naharnet – does signal that with the US and German et al intel cooperation being so instrumental along with Hezbollah and the three Lebanese security services in staunching the terror attacks over the last year, well, logically, this pillar of the quadripartite alliance (Security agencies-Hezbollah-external powers-unity government) should come under more direct threat.

It seems likely that in the coming period the scope of targets will broaden – quite possibly in ways that we have not really seen for quite some time.
