JERUSALEM - Lebanese President Michel Suleiman said Wednesday that the Lebanese army and militant organization Hezbollah is prepared to react to any "Israeli aggression."

In an interview with Arabic-language newspaper 'El-Watan' which will be published Thursday, Suleiman said that "Israel is poised to attack at any moment, so any new military activity will not be taken lightly."

In a talk with high school students in early March, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said that Israel is not looking for confrontations, and will not initiate attacks in the northern region.

Barak continued by saying that if we are forced into a confrontation, we will react, and we will “hold the government of Lebanon and all of Lebanon responsible for any Hizbullah attack, and we strongly advise them not to try and take action against us.”

While the IDF continues to have soldiers “train on a real model of what they can expect to see inside Gaza or Lebanon,” according to a senior Engineering Corps officer, the tactics are merely preparation, and do not insinuate any planned ‘aggression.’
