Commenting on the mounting concerns over threats against churches, Interior Minister Nouhad Machnouk was critical of any party that made such threats.The threat raised question marks about the party that issued it; namely who stands behind it, whether it even exists or was it part of an intelligence game to lay the groundwork for something more dangerous, i.e. the destabilization of Lebanon.The official dismissed reports that spoke about the presence of a group of suicide bombers that had been trained and equipped to carry out suicide operations in Lebanon.A source who had taken part in the meeting between Interior Minister Nouhad Machnouk and Muslim scholars told An-Nahar that the Islamic State, previously known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS), has no organizational presence in Lebanon and no Emir.
