BEIRUT: The Lebanese army said on Saturday that it was revoking measures taken by the government against the Hezbollah movement and called for all armed militants to withdraw from the streets.
It said that the head of airport security, who had been reassigned from his job, would remain in his post and that the army would look into a communications network set up by the militant group.
The military said it had taken these decisions in the light of a government wish that it rule on these matters. The army's statement came shortly after Prime Minister Fuad Siniora made a televised address to the nation.
Tuesday's government decision to reassign the head of airport security and launch a judicial probe into the communications network sparked bloody clashes between supporters of the Hezbollah-led opposition and the Western-backed ruling bloc.
