Hizbullah is trying to cross over the Litani River and into southern Lebanon, despite being banned from such action by UN Resolution 1701, IDF Chief of General Staff Gabi Ashkenazi said during Sunday's cabinet meeting. "Hizbullah is one minister away from controlling the Lebanese government," Ashkenazi said. "UNIFIL and the Lebanese army are indeed operating, but arms transfers from Syria are continuing into Lebanon, primarily because there is no effective security apparatus patrolling the border."
