Lebanon on the Verge of Crisis

(Al-Arabiya-Dubai) Dawood al-Shirian - The Syrian-Lebanese border is witnessing a marked presence of the Syrian army. In the meantime, their presence is not met by any kind of official Lebanese objection.

There is no doubt that the Syrian regime will not remain silent while watching Syrian citizens and defecting soldiers cross to north Lebanon and Turkey, which is creating increasing international pressure. If Damascus fails to distract everyone's attention by creating tension on its borders with Israel and Turkey, then it may try to ignite its border with Lebanon and mix the Lebanese-Palestinian cards.
