BEIRUT — Lebanon's defense minister offered US officials advice on how Israel could defeat the Hizbullah in a future war and vowed to keep the Lebanese army out of the fighting, according to secret diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks.

That memo and another secret cable that revealed US secret spy flights over Hizbullah locations in Lebanon in 2008 are sure to fuel tensions.A UN tribunal is expected to issue indictments in the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, possibly as early as this month.
