(5 Nov 2017) LEADIN: An Egyptian political analyst says that the surprise resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri would mostly affect Iran. Hariri announced he was stepping down on Saturday in a televised address from the Saudi capital Riyadh, while on a visit to the Kingdom. STORYLINE: Lebanese prime minister Saad Hariri resigned from his post in a televised address from the Saudi capital Saturday, accusing Hezbollah of taking the country hostage, in a surprise move that plunged the nation into uncertainty amid heightened regional tensions. In his resignation speech, Hariri fired a vicious tirade against Iran and its Lebanese proxy Hezbollah group for what he said was their meddling in Arab affairs and said that "Iran's arms in the region will be cut off." Egyptian analyst Atef Al -Saadawy predicts the move could herald a "trimming Iran's nails in the region". "It happened at a time when his government was successful and in harmony with other political sects in Lebanon and its content was totally directed against Iran and its Lebanese proxy Hezbollah group." Saadawy adds that the development also fits in with the latest moves by US President Donald Trump and his administration to cancel the international nuclear agreement with Iran. He says it might even be a prelude to further sanctions on Iran and a possibly a military intervention. Hariri was appointed prime minister in late 2016 and headed a 30-member coalition government that included members of Hezbollah. But it has been an uneasy partnership between Hariri, who heads a Sunni-led camp loyal to Saudi Arabia, and Hezbollah, which represents a camp loyal to Shiite Iran. After Hariri's resignation on Saturday, Saudi Arabia said its forces intercepted a ballistic missile fired by Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen toward one of the kingdom's major international airports on the outskirts of Riyadh. A Saudi-led coalition launched a war against the Houthis and their allies in March 2015 that grinds on today, a campaign overseen by Crown Prince Mohammed. Al-Saadawy says the missile attack attempt could be a direct response to Hariri's resignation.

A unit of Lebanon's first female officers-in-training showed off their newly-acquired skills during a ceremony on Thursday in Dbayeh, north of Beirut. The near 200 officers are part of a batch of more than 500 officers of the first policewomen's unit of the country's Internal Security Forces (ISF). The ISF itself employs 30,000 personnel who serve under Major General Ashraf Rifi. Captain Suzanne al-Hajj, one of the trainers in the program, who previously served as one of only two females in the ISF, said the program highlighted the right of women under the Lebanese constitution to work in the police force. The officers are trained under a joint U.S. and Internal Security Forces community police training program, which includes military, disciplinary and legal training. General Ibrahim Basbous, the head of the ISF training institute, said the women's training is no different to men's. "The male training doesn't differ from the women's. They are doing military, disciplinary and legal training, the military training is for them to be prepared and ready to perform their duties in arresting criminals and troublemakers, defending themselves and citizens at the same time," said General Basbous. Todd Robinson, a U.S. official attending the ceremony said American police officers had helped during the first phase of training the policewomen but that the ISF has taken charge of the rest of the training program. "These women demonstrated that this kind of opportunity is open to all Lebanese. I think it really goes towards cementing the partnership between the United States and Lebanon, I think it is really good to know that while we may have started the training process, the Lebanese are taking over and they are going to continue the process of training their own people and I think that is a really good message," Deputy Robinson said. According to a statement on the U.S. embassy in Lebanon's website, the joint ISF and U.S. training program is a "$132 million multi-year law enforcement assistance program in Lebanon (...) designed to support reform in the Lebanese law enforcement sector by strengthening the capacity of the ISF to enforce the rule of law in Lebanon and to protect the Lebanese people." The embassy says the joint program has helped train more than 9,000 members of the ISF since 2008. Female officers demonstrated various skills during Thursday's drill from arresting suspects to shooting and abseiling. "We faced some difficulties in the military course at first because we hadn't been exposed to military life, but this session has boosted our spirits and has really motivated us to defend our country. This is a right of every Lebanese person; every girl has the honour of wearing this uniform and being part of this battle that every man engages in," sergeant-in-training Nicole Jheem said. Another cadet, Mirella Hanna, said: "We made it and we proved that women can do what men do. Many people out there underestimate girls, but we are training hard here for when we go out, so that people will have confidence that we can provide security, just as men do." The female officers-in-training are expected to assume full police responsibilities later this year. By: Nadia Mayen Al Arabiya with Agencies

The 16 Days of Activism to End Violence Against Women 2011 "Beating is...shameful" Men & Women Say No to Violence Against Women National Campaign, Lebanon International Medical Corps, in partnership with ABAAD-Resource Center for Gender Equality, lanuches their joint campaign for the internationally recognized 16 days of activism to End Violence Against Women. This year we believed that our message needed not only to be peaceful and inspiring, but to come from the youth-Real agent of societal transformation. Our message has great potential for inspiring change and Gender Equality. The National campaign is united under the message "Beating is...shameful - Men & Women Say No to Violence Against Women". Using a common phrase that stems from our culture, the campaign draws attention to the deep patriarchal roots of our culture, and how that fails to reveal our modern day stance and hopes for our great country. During these 16 days we tear this outdated lie in order to reveal the truth that we embrace today: The truth of the ugly nature of Violence Against Women. Eight Lebanese and Eight Iraqi young men recently finished a training workshop, implemented in partnership with Wonderbox Productions, in which they learned many aspects of the filmmaking process. They also learned about Gender Roles, Gender Equality, and the importance and theory of Engaging Men in Ending Violence Against Women. Most importantly, however, they learned how to relay the beautiful notions and dire need to End Violence Against Women through the medium of film. These young men produced eight T.V. spots that focus on sending a message to Men and Women alike: We all have a role to play in Ending Violence Against Women. Each T.V. spot is an original creation of these young men. Each T.V. spot is a call for action for men, from men residing in Lebanon. The 8 T.V. spots will be aired on Lebanese & regional T.V. stations throughout the 16 days of activism. Other components of the media campaign include display of hundreds of billboards throughout the country, dissemination of thousands of flyers/calls for action and posters, mass text messages, newspapers and online Ads & use of social media.

Lebanon PA, 7.26.2017: The Lebanon Valley Rail Trail, a partnership between the County of Lebanon, LVRT group, DCNR, PennDOT, and property owners, is progressing at a steady pace. The newest Trail Head is going in at 25th Street and Hanford Drive between West Lebanon and North Lebanon Townships; at the entrance to Lebanon Rails Business Park. This is part of Phase 7 behind the Lebanon Valley Mall, from the tunnel to Long Lane. However, at this time, we are stopping at Tunnel Hill Road. The Trail through Tunnel Hill Road is also being "grubbed" to remove growth that is blocking the Trail. The ground up mulch is hauled away. This section of Trail will take about one year to complete. The Trail connects communities like Jonestown and the City of Lebanon; schools like Lebanon High and Northern Lebanon High; parks--Fisher, Wengert Memorial, Glonninger Woods, Union Canal Tunnel, Coleman's...and eventually Swatara State Park. Over 100,000 people are using the southern section of trail. The demand is there for this community resource that gets people/families, outdoors for recreation and wellness. All total there will be about 33 miles of Trail within Lebanon County. However, the Trail also connects to the Lancaster County and Schuylkill County, and is part of a bigger statewide network of Trails--Stony Valley and the Appalachian Trails are examples.

Since January 2015, with the support of UNHCR and the EU and in partnership with Ray of Environment Association, our joint Lebanese and Syrian community committee has been collecting recyclable goods, including plastic and iron, in the city of Sarafand. Just like in Sarafand, you can contribute to building a cleaner, more sustainable future for Lebanon. Peaceful and sustainable waste management solutions are possible; do not wait for the next ‪garbage crisis‬ to take action!
