          Apparently, Saudi Arabia is trying to confront Iran and Syria in this way. A Shiite militant organization and Hezbollah’s political party are operating in Lebanon.
          The fact is that in Lebanon there is a special political system, the so-called confessionalism, which implies the organization of state power in accordance with the division of society into religious communities

    Deliveries are planned for several years. According to the Saudis, military assistance to the Lebanese government will help stabilize the situation in the country. It seems that where the Saudis appear, there is a destabilization, not stabilization. request

    Lebanon is already a powder keg - as long as hostilities are not conducted, it can break out and explode at any moment. And then the flow of refugees will grow at times. The country has 4.5 million inhabitants and about 1 million refugees. And most importantly, the Syrian army and Russian Aerospace Forces will be a new headache. There are plenty of goals, and so here a whole country is at hand.

    The Saudis pay for their "funeral" which they are preparing just those whom they help so. After all, Gaddafi also paid for various adventures of overseas leaders and where he is.

    There is no need to wait for stability where Saudis are involved. Why would philanthropy be towards Lebanon?
