Lebanese Army chief Gen. Joseph Aoun urged his soldiers to remain vigilant and alert at the southern border in the face of "threats of the Israeli enemy," during a speech Tuesday to commemorate Lebanon's 74th Independence Day.While the comments were interpreted in some media reports as an acknowledgement by the military of the risk of a new conflict, a source close to the Army told The Daily Star that Aoun's remarks were not made in reaction to any particular Israeli action, but as a routine reminder of Lebanon's preparedness at the southern border.
