Former PM Saad Hariri slams Hezbullah attack on Israel

Former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri has slammed Hezbullah for its Tuesday attack on IDF soldiers on the Israeli-Lebanese border. This is from the first link.
Lebanese media cited Hariri, an ardent rival of Hezbollah, as slamming the organization for its attack on Israeli targets, saying it contributes to "disrupting national efforts in the fight against terrorism and extremism."

He also criticized what he said was the tendency by many in Lebanon to overlook the actions of Hezbollah.

“These sides are acknowledging that the party has the exclusive right to set up camps in Lebanon and wage wars without the consent of the state, government, and army,” the Lebanese newspaper Al-Nahar's website quoted Hariri as saying.

The IDF responded to the bombs planted by Hezbollah by shelling two of the group's targets in southern Lebanon.

The army suspects that the incident is directly related to Sunday’s attempted infiltration from Lebanon, which occurred in the same region.
My sense is that Hariri doesn't have as much influence as he used to, and that the Lebanese Army is on the verge of (if not already) part of the fight against us, but it's nice to hear a little common sense coming out of any Arab country.
