Lebanon will witness a new phase of cooperation between the security forces and the Army to make the country safer in the wake of bombings and other incidents over the last two years, security sources say.The sources called for the establishment of institutions in Lebanon that would train security and military forces in intelligence gathering and combating spying, rather than using funds to send officers to be trained in America and Europe.They also urged officials to take advantage of previous successful cases of cooperation between security forces, specifically the Internal Security Forces' Information Branch and the General Directorate of Army Intelligence. According to recent reports, Lebanon is due to enter a dangerous new phase following the beginning of the vacancy in the presidency, which is expected to have serious implications for the security situation.A group of active extremists from the Nusra Front is controlling the entrance of recruits to Lebanon, the sources revealed.Additionally, one of the security reports, titled "A New Nusra in Lebanon," referring to the Al-Qaeda-linked Nusra Front, indicated that a significant number of the organization's members have arrived to Lebanon.
