- The Israeli government has given the green light for military incursions on Lebanon.
- Israeli warplanes as of last hovered over Al-Nehmeh (suburbs of Beirut).
Let's hope that nothing more happens during the wee hours of the morning.
This was all so unnecessary and goes to show that the national dialogue meetings were useless. All these private meetings with Saad Hariri. All to no avail. Nasrallah is sending a message to all that Hizbullah will not change nor alter its strategies that justify its existence.
Again, history repeats itself. In the late '60s, it was the Palestinian question that was bigger than us, and now it's Hizbullah. It's bigger than any Lebanese government's policies.
I don't know what's in store for us. I"ll follow the news and only time will tell.
