Qahwaji Says Army Should be Fully Ready to Confront Terror

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Army chief Gen. Jean Qahwaji said in his Order of the Day on Friday that troops should be fully ready to confront terrorism and unite amid regional and local crises.

“You continued to confront terrorism relentlessly” and with “courage,” he told soldiers on the occasion of Army Day.

“The Lebanese army has reached a high level of professionalism in its confrontation of terrorist organizations,” the general said.

He urged the military “to be fully ready to confront terrorism and the Israeli enemy which continues to violate Lebanese sovereignty in different ways.”

“The strength of your institution lies in its unity,” he said, adding that troops stay at a distance from all sides and are committed to the National Accord.

“The regional crisis and continued Lebanese political divisions that have caused the presidential vacuum require your unity,” said Qahwaji.

This year, Lebanon celebrates the 70th anniversary of the Lebanese army's founding, a year after the attack of terrorists on military bases in the northeastern border town of Arsal, he added.

Al-Qaida-linked al-Nusra Front and Islamic State group extremists overran Arsal in August last year and engaged in heavy gunbattles with the military.

They also took with them hostages from the army and police and later executed four of them.

The army chief vowed to exert all efforts to release the captives.

Qahwaji also urged troops to consolidate their “confidence in the nation” and “express pride” in the military institution which has protected Lebanon.

possible if the resistance shares some of the weapons it is using to kill Syrians with the Lebanese Armed Forces so it can better confront the common enemies. Bless You

sorry flamethrower, I think @sharing and God Bless (Guest) was referring to the resistance not Iran... unless you consider the resistance and Iran as one entity.

Dear Mr. Qahwaji
I am concerned about flamethrower. Do you think he is mentally disturbed?

"possible if the resistance shares some of the weapons it is using to kill Syrians with the Lebanese Armed Forces so it can better confront the common enemies. Bless You"......just think what you are asking???? A "state" asking a resistance group to give them Arms? this what happens when "states" become slaves of the west.

1anonymetexasusa ....last time the US threatened (politically and economically) the Lebanese government if the Lebanese "state" accepted Iranian arms. Do you think if Iran offered again, there would be any change???

Shame on the Caporal. A traitor and a destructor.

Missing humble 31 July 2015, 10:49

The enemies of Lebanon (in addition to the takfiris, terrorists and Israel) are:
1 - Syria
2 - Iran
3 - Ebola
4 - Caporal
5 - Any Lebanese supporting Ebola and any Christian supporting Caporal.

Hi Movaten :)

That so-called resistance of yours ya Southern is anything BUT a resistance. It goes and invites the sh*t into our country, and we together with our army, we have to clean up after your gibberish. Leave Israel alone and Israel will not bother us. Leave Syria alone, and no sob IS terrorist will dare touch us. Your so-called Resistance trash is what is attracting the flies and all pests into our country.

When we see bad losers what do we see them do? How would they behave? They will create a zillion silly trolls, forget about the same manners, thumb themselves up, thumb us down and never forget, that dirty tongue of theirs. The more you sobs try, the less you make sense. Adults you may be in age, but kids below 5 you remain, screwed up idiots you are, to be perfectly clear.

Tric, if there was one lame stupid clown in this forum that believes that we believe in your silly trumps, then someone should nudge you and wake you up. Nothing of your stupidity will pass, not even your attempts to sound Portuglish in this forum, you're just another has been dumb Yellow/Orange troll who still believes that when hungry eating one's sh*t is the best survival trick in the world. Brain dead you are.
