A shipment of French weapons for the Lebanese Army will soon arrive, paid for by a multibillion-dollar grant from Saudi Arabia, but specific dates have not been disclosed, according to a high-level security source.The reason the weapons were sent so quickly to Lebanon, according to a security source, is that more clashes are anticipated between the Army and Islamist militants.But security in Lebanon is under control, despite the outbreak of clashes and isolated attacks against the Lebanese Army, a senior security source told The Daily Star. The source stressed that the recent clashes in Tripoli and the ongoing military crackdown in north Lebanon proved that the Army was able to take the lead and defend Lebanon from threats. The militant groups, the source added, had limited means of confronting the Army.
