Newsweek (Pacific Edition);8/30/2010 (Pacific Edition), Vol. 156 Issue 8/9, p1
The article reports on the military tension between Israel and Lebanese militant group Hizbullah with the involvement of the Lebanese Army. Israeli officials have accused Hizbullah of carrying military weapons and raising tension on the border. According to an unanimous Lebanese security official, most of the Lebanese Army soldiers in the south are Shiites, which would make them more susceptible to pressure from the militant group. In July 2010, President Bashar al-Assad of Syria and King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia paid visit to Beirut to calm things down.
