USA to deliver Cessna armed aircraft and Hellfire missiles to Lebanon

American Ambassador to Lebanon said on Friday that his country is to provide Lebanon with armed Cessna aircraft, in addition to Hellfire missiles.
The aircraft would be bought with Saudi funds recently pledged to the Lebanese army.
Another Cessna previously provided by the US to the Lebanese army would also be armed.
The pledges and arms deliveries come as several allies of Lebanon step up efforts to bolster its armed forces as the threat from ISIS in the region grows.
Lebanon was among ten Arab states that pledged on Thursday to rally behind Washington against ISIS, the extremist group that has controlled large swaths of Iraq and Syria.
