MOSCOW, November 21 (RIA Novosti) - A Lebanese military commander said on Saturday border security would be tightened due to a possible Israeli attack.

General Jean Qahwaji warned Lebanese soldiers to "be more aware when traveling along the border," in case of an Israeli attack on Lebanese territory, according to the London based Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper.

Jordan's Ad-Dustour daily wrote on November 6 that Israel could begin a new military operation in Lebanon in spring 2010. Citing French parliamentary and military sources, it said plans of possible military operation in Lebanon in spring 2010 were discussed in France, at a meeting of French, U.S. and Israeli military experts.

The paper said a recent report from the UN secretary general could serve as an indirect indicator of a possible military operation in Lebanon. The report concerns the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which prohibits storing weapons in the security zone between the Litani River and the Blue Line, which is the Lebanese-Israeli border. The area is under the observation of UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL).

Lebanon's ambassador to the United Nations, Noaf Salaam, earlier warned there were signs of an imminent Israeli attack on his country, saying that the "pattern of Israeli breaches" constituted a serious threat to Lebanon. He also said that the increased "escalation in a fragile and explosive situation" signaled Israeli plans of an imminent attack.

The situation in southern Lebanon became extremely tense in July this year, when an explosion occurred in the security zone near the Lebanese-Israeli border in the town of Khirbat Silim. Israel and the United States said the explosion was set off by a detonator in a Hezbollah weapons store prohibited by the UN Security Council.
