The Cabinet convened on Tuesday at the Presidential Palace in Baabda to discuss 29 items on its agenda, in addition to the military escalation on Monday by Israel after a security incident at the border led the Jewish state to fire artillery across the frontier.
The Cabinet decided to file a complaint to the United Nations (UN) Security Council against Israel's aggression in South Lebanon on Monday, reports said.
According to LBCI TV station, the Cabinet instructed Minister of Finance Ghazi Wazni to sign the contracts with KPMG and Oliver Wyman, and with Alvarez and Marsal.
