Lebanon: 'Any Hand That Aggresses Against Army Will Be Cut Off'

A top Lebanese official has warned that its military will "pursue" anyone who attacks it, after two troops were killed in a clash with Islamists in the country's east.

"Any hand that aggresses [sic] against the army will be cut off," army commander Jean Kahwaji told newspaper Al-Safir on Monday.
