Lebanese President Michel Suleiman said Sunday that he believes the Lebanese army is being targeted through "terrorist attacks." The military and security forces "protect the nation, its peace, people, and stability", Suleiman said. He also offered condolences to the victims of Saturday's bombing in the eastern Bekaa region of Hermel, stressing that "the army has become the main target of terrorist attacks". Lebanon has been rocked by a series of suicide bombings targeting areas affiliated with the Hezbollah political movement, which has been accused by militant Islamic groups of backing Syria's government. Scots are becoming more skeptical about the idea of Scotland becoming independent of the United Kingdom, two polls showed on Sunday, delivering a setback to nationalists who want the small country to call off its 307-year-old union with England. The polls were published on the eve of the first full cabinet meeting to be held in Scotland by Prime Minister David Cameron's government, a move meant to demonstrate his commitment to keeping the oil-rich nation in the UK. Scots will decide whether to break from the UK in a referendum on September 18, with the pro-independence Scottish National Party trying to persuade them they would be freer and more prosperous on their own, a claim Cameron rejects.
