Israel is watching its neighbor to the north closely following the announcement on Tuesday by Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri that he is resigning after nearly two weeks of nonviolent protests in Beirut and elsewhere across Lebanon.
Hariri’s resignation came shortly after protesters in the Lebanese capital were attacked by thugs belonging to Hezbollah and the Amal Movement, two groups which have stated that they were against his resignation.
