Hizbullah Considering Military Coup in Lebanon

Hizbullah's leadership is considering the possibility of a military coup to take control of Lebanon should the current Syrian regime fall, the al-Arabia network reported on Tuesday.

According to the report, Hizbullah officials have expressed concerns over the escalation of the situation in Syria, a situation that could cause the fall of Bashar al-Assad's regime. They noted that it was due to those concerns that the Hezbollah leadership was examining various scenarios including a military coup in Beirut.
