Lebanon's security agencies must unite to confront multiple security crises facing the country, especially following the targeted killing of soldiers and a recent plot to assassinate General Security head Maj. Gen. Abbas Ibrahim, security sources told The Daily Star.Despite deep political divisions affecting the country, the security agencies have recently boosted coordination among various branches with the establishment of a joint operations room, which has already yielded positive results and increased agents' readiness to respond to threats. These groups seek to attract more fighters to their cause in order to take Damascus and topple the Syrian regime.The security agencies have not revealed their next step in their ongoing efforts to keep the peace and prevent the killing of more Lebanese soldiers and security officials, but sources said that initial information indicated the presence of extremist groups in north Lebanon with ties to the Nusra Front and ISIS.
