Libya offers Lebanon an air defense system

Libya has offered to provide Lebanon, badly hit in Israeli air strikes last month, with an air defense sytem, government sources report. The pro-Libyan Beirut newspaper as-Safir said the defense system would cost about $2 billion and would entail the training of 3,500 Lebanese military personnel and technicians. Government officials said they would welcome other offers from Arab, Eastern, or Western states for ground-to-air defense systems needed to defend against Israel's sophisticated US-supplied weaponry.
