(NEWS) Lebanon: US Can Keep Aid, Give It To Israel

"Spiteful response: Lebanon's defense minister slams American decision to halt military aid to Beirut following deadly border skirmish with Israel; 'Let them keep their money or give it to Israel,' he says.

Lebanon's defense minister on Wednesday lashed out at a US decision to halt aid to his country's army in the wake of a deadly border clash with Israel, protesting that aid was being made conditional.

'Whoever sets as a condition that the aid should not be used to protect Lebanon's land, people and borders from the (Israeli) enemy can keep their money,' Defense Minister Elias Murr told a news conference. 'Let them keep their money or give it to Israel. We will confront (Israel) with the capabilities we own.'"
