The Hariri newspaper is leading on its first page with a story about an alleged threatening flyer by Jund Ash-Sham. I read that flyer, and it does not sound like Jund Ash-Sham at all. It looks like it was drafted by Lebanese intelligence, or Hariri intelligence or Lebanese Forces intelligence, to provide pretests to take extra-legal measures. Brace yourselves. The flyer does not contain any of the religious language that one usually finds here. This flyer was written by a secular Arabic speaker. You may fool Ahmad Fatfat with this, but not Angry Arab.
