Lebanon's defense minister threatened on Saturday to halt the Lebanese army's deployment in south Lebanon if the United Nations does not intervene after an IDF commando raid near Baalbek. Defense Minister Elias Murr said Israel's raid in the eastern Bekaa Valley early Saturday was a violation of a UN-imposed cease-fire that ended fighting between Israel and Hizbullah.
