BEIRUT - The US ambassador to Lebanon said Thursday Washington will soon deliver additional weaponry to help bolster the Lebanese military as it faces a growing threat from militants from Syria.

 

Ambassador David Hale said the deliveries come in response to a request from the Lebanese armed forces for emergency assistance after Islamic militants overran a Lebanese town near the Syrian border, killing and kidnapping soldiers.

 

Hale did not provide a price tag for the new assistance, but said that it is part of a long-standing partnership with the Lebanese military.
