Anti-ISIL coalition ‘not serving Lebanon’

The analysts believe that the real objective of the so-called international coalition formed by the US is to expand US's military presence in the region and advance the interests of Israel, Lebanon's chief enemy.

Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil participated in a high-level strategy session held in Saudi Arabia on September 11 - with representatives from 10 Arab nations - on how to confront and ultimately destroy the ISIL.

During the meeting, which was also attended by US Secretary of State John Kerry, Lebanon signed a joint communiqué along with other Arab countries, to do more to stop the flow of funds and militants to the ISIL and help reconstruct the communities “brutalized” by the terrorists.

However, the Lebanese foreign minister was later quoted as saying that his country would not formally enter into any specific axis. This comes as some analysts suggest that the stance could indicate a possible scenario in which Lebanon acts as a mediator between the supporters of the campaign and its opponents.

“Maybe, there are some ambitions that Lebanon could play a role of mediator between the axis of resistance in the area and the new coalition in such a way that any attack against ISIS (ISIL) in Syria and Iraq... would not go beyond these targets,” Wafiq Qanso, from Al-Akhbar newspaper, told Press TV.

Hisham Jaber, from the Center for Middle East Studies, said Lebanon can tell the US-led coalition that it would not be part of the axis if it does not coordinate with Syria.

The US has been seeking to form an international coalition to fight the ISIL, which many observers believe is a product of the policies of Washington itself.

The Takfiri group currently controls parts of eastern Syria and Iraq’s northern and western regions, where it has committed heinous crimes.
