General Security Friday hit back at critics of Maj. Gen. Abbas Ibrahim, defending his repeated trips to Syria as being officially sanctioned by the Lebanese state to resolve a number of pressing matters including kidnappings. The Lebanese were on their way to join the ranks of the Syrian rebels.The latest mediation attempts by the General Security chief led to the release this month of 13 Syrian nuns who were kidnapped by a Syrian opposition group last year.
