Trump said Lebanon fights Hezbollah ... it's actually part of the government

Hezbollah is not a menace to the Lebanese state; Hezbollah is the Lebanese state, a force in control of central state organs.

An appeals court overturned that ban as well, but the Supreme Court allowed portions to go through, including a 50,000 cap on refugees allowed into the USA - a number reached earlier this month, meaning many will be turned away. Syrian refugees make up about 25 percent (1.5 million) of Lebanon's population of some 6 million people.

Trump, who ordered cruise-missile strikes against a Syrian air base after Assad's last alleged use of chemical weapons in April, said he won't stand idle if Assad tries using such weapons again. And one of the things that we have made tremendous strides at is getting rid of ISIS. But asked how, exactly, the United States can help Lebanon cope with the massive number of refugees, Trump answered, "Well, we are helping". With the support of Iran, the organization is also fueling humanitarian catastrophe in Syria.

"We believe that dialogue is the best way (of) improving this relationship between Saudi Arabia and Qatar", Hariri said.

"I certainly think that what he's done to that country and to humanity is frightful", Trump said. The group continues to increase it's military arsenal, which thens (sic) to start yet another conflict with Israel constantly fighting them back.

The current draft state department budget calls for cuts in U.S. military assistance and analysts say Lebanon could be among the countries affected.

The dog was taken to a veterinary hospital where medics discovered burns on his paws and respiratory tract injuries. Jack's family and the fire department are all grateful for that life-saving gift from two girl scouts.

"[Lebanon has] a coalition government that's supporting over a million and a half refugees, and we have an active effort with them in which we've armed them and they are fighting [IS] on their border", Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told Al-Monitor.

Whilst the group is Lebanese, it is strongly backed by Iran, and its political wing is very influential within the country.

In a unilateral move on April 7, the United States military chose to target the Syrian army directly by firing 59 Tomahawk missiles at al-Shayrat airbase in Homs province in western Syria.
