Lebanese Army ordered not to fight

The Lebanese Army has been ordered not to fight the Israelis. They are not allowed to shoot at planes attacking Lebanon, or defend Lebanese civilians.

The question has to be asked - if the Army can't do that, what is it for?

And even when 11 soldiers were killed near Beirut and 9 soldiers were killed near Tripoli, they were ordered to stay silent.

Is Hizbollah the real Lebanese army?
