123RF

The US is withholding $105 million Dollars in security aid for Lebanon.

That's according to two U.S. officials who've chosen to remain anonymous according to Reuters. 

The move comes days after Lebanon's Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri resigned from office. 

It's not been confirmed why the aid has been blocked. 

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently called on Lebanon’s leaders to help form a new government responsive to the needs of its people.
