Lebanon blames rocket fire to Israel on - Israel!

Yesterday's Daily Star of Lebanon reports:
Lebanon’s government has information about who is behind recent security incidents in the south, Defense Minister Fayez Ghosn said, denying rumors that UNIFIL might abort its mission in the country.

We know who has been firing the rockets, who makes the explosives and who is jeopardizing security in the south and southerners and to which party they belong to whose aim is to destabilize Lebanon,” Ghosn told As-Safir newspaper in an article published Monday.

“We have reliable leads in our investigation but we will not disclose them to the public except when [the information is confirmed],” he added.
He didn't leave us in suspense long. Today's Daily Star says:
Lebanese Defense Minister Fayez Ghosn Monday blamed Israel and its agents for the firing of mysterious rockets from Lebanon into the Jewish state in an attempt to undermine security and stability in south Lebanon.

“The party that has launched mysterious rockets from the south is known,” Ghosn told The Daily Star by telephone, in a clear reference to Israel and its agents. However, he did not elaborate.

“Lebanon’s enemies, namely Israel, have no interest in the continuation of calm and stability in the south,” he said.
In case you are wondering where this idiot's head is at, well, here's what he said in August:
Lebanese Defense Minister Fayez Ghosn has praised Iran's support for his country's independence and dignity, expressing optimism about his visit to Tehran in a near future.

Iran respects the independency and dignity of Lebanon and always stands by Lebanon in all conditions,” said Ghosn in a meeting with Iran's Ambassador to Beirut Ghazanfar Roknabadi on Tuesday, Mehr news agency reported.

The Lebanese defense minister described Iran as “a model in loyalty and aid” to regional states, especially the Palestinian cause.
