Lebanese and Jordanian security forces say they'll keep the peace at "Global March"

From Lebanon's Daily Star:
A security source told The Daily Star that the Lebanese Army would take measures to prevent demonstrators from crossing into the area to the south of the Litani River, which is in the field of operation of the U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon.

The source said that security measures which would be put into effect at midnight Thursday, in an effort to prevent a repetition of last May, when Israeli troops opened fire on unarmed Palestinians approaching the border to mark the Nakba Day, killing 10 and wounding around 100.

Sukkarieh said he did not anticipate any security incidents.

“Not at all, we are fully coordinating with Lebanese authorities. We are away from the border fence and there is no physical contact with the enemy’s army,” he said.
They also say there will be no more than 5000 protesters in Lebanon.

From the Jordan Times:
According to the Public Security Department (PSD), authorities will deploy a large-scale security presence in the Jordan Valley in a bid to ensure the safety of participants and secure the border region.

“We are working with organisers and other security services to ensure the march stays peaceful and does not impact the border region,” PSD Spokesperson Lt. Col. Mohammed Khatib told The Jordan Times.
I have not found any articles about preparations for the demonstrations in Egypt or Syria.

We'll see if this is true in a few hours.
