Now Lebanon - Higher Defense Council voices need to prevent “Lebanese instability, arms’ smuggling” - August 12, 2011

The Higher Defense Council issued a statement after its Friday meeting stressing that relevant Lebanese authorities “will prevent any attempt” to destabilize the country or “smuggle weapons” into other states.
According to the statement, the members of the council discussed “the tasks that the Lebanese army and security forces have to fulfill in order to protect the country.”
The HDC members also called for “cooperating with UNIFIL troops and protecting their movement [across Lebanon],” the statement said.
It added that the council addressed the ways to offer aid to Syrian citizens pouring into Lebanon due to the unrest in their country.
The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported on Sunday that the Syrian authorities “seized a car with Lebanese number plates… that was carrying a considerable quantity of ammunition and weapons.”
Syria's government has sought to crush the democracy movement with force, leaving at least 2,059 people dead, including 391 members of the security forces, according to the Syrian Observatory.
