Israel Says Hizbullah Runs Lebanese Army

(Reuters) Dan Williams - Israel said on Tuesday that Hizbullah had gained control over Lebanon's U.S.-sponsored military, signaling both would be in Israeli gunsights in any future war. Outlining potential threats in Lebanon, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said, "We are talking about Hizbullah and the Lebanese army, and to my regret this is the reality. The Lebanese army has turned into an integral part of Hizbullah's command structure. The Lebanese army has lost its independence and become an inseparable part of the Hizbullah apparatus." Lieberman said on Israel's northern front, "In anything that transpires, it will be one theater, Syria and Lebanon together, Hizbullah, the Assad regime and all of the Assad regime's collaborators."
