Lebanese army calls ceasefire in Tripoli

The Lebanese army says it is ready for a ceasefire with Fateh Al Islam in Tripoli, if the group agrees to stop its attacks.

It is the most advernturous activity by the army since the Civil War, and shows that they have clearly received training and funds from outside the country.

During the Israeli war on Lebanon last summer, the army received orders from the government not to fight.
