Plans by the Al-Qaeda-inspired Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) to put Lebanon on a fault line that is currently striking the region starting from Iraq have prompted Lebanese authorities to adopt new security arrangements and political steps to shield the country's internal situation against ISIS threats, security sources said Monday.In the meantime, authorities are searching for a yellow Volvo truck that entered Lebanon via the Bekaa town of Arsal as well as for suspected terrorist groups and ISIS vehicles that managed to enter Lebanese territory with the aim of carrying out bombings and plunging Lebanon into the region's turmoil, the sources said.The Hezbollah command and its security operations room are closely following what is happening in Lebanon, having received reports from abroad indicating that America and Iran are keen on stability in Lebanon.Everyone knows that Hezbollah has always been apprehensive and suspicious of American intentions and does not trust them.The party is anxiously following the situation in Lebanon, while fully realizing that the events in Iraq were the outcome of the U.S. occupation of that country and the U.S. policy in the Middle East aimed at destroying what is in existence now, launching the slogan of "creative chaos".
