ISIS has become a "giant" that is a danger to every party in the Middle East, Speaker Nabih Berri said, while welcoming increased efforts to "downsize" the Islamist group that has seized large swaths of Syria and Iraq.According to An-Nahar, Berri was surprised that the U.N. and its Security Council had remained silent over the threat that ISIS posed.The Arsal clashes raised fears in Lebanon of an imminent ISIS threat, prompting the country's leaders to stand united in their support for the military as it combats terror in Lebanon's border region.
