ISG Urges 'Continued Int'l Support to Further Strengthen LAF Capabilities'

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

The members of the International Support Group (ISG) for Lebanon said in a statement Tuesday that they “commend the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) in their efforts to combat terrorism and to shield Lebanon’s territorial integrity and security.”

Referring to the army's ongoing offensive on the eastern border against the Islamic State group, the ISG members extended “sincere condolences for those servicemen who have lost their lives,” wishing the injured a speedy recovery.

“The members of the ISG reiterate their strong and unanimous support to the LAF as the defender of Lebanon,” they said in the statement.

They also called for “continued international support to further strengthen the LAF’s capabilities.”

The ISG comprises the U.N. and the governments of China, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, the UK and the U.S., together with the EU and the Arab League.

It was launched in September 2013 by the U.N. Secretary-General with ex-President Michel Suleiman to help “mobilize support and assistance for Lebanon’s stability” and to “encourage assistance for the Lebanese Army and Syrian refugees in Lebanon and host communities” as well as “government programs and public services impacted by the Syrian crisis.”

Lebanon doesn't need more weapons or money, all we need is the UN to come and pacify the nation by shooting at hizbollah and palestinian thugs till they surrender.

You are the one that should be shot, and that can be arranged too.

this street thug should be reported to the authorities for making death threats on a public forum. Oh, I forgot he is a shia like abbas ibrahim so the general security will not arrest him.

Thumb rocococo 22 August 2017, 18:57

That's why I reported him to the INTERPOL, I knew abbas will not arrest him.

Lebanon should be like Costa Rica, no army and obviously no terrorists. They have a light police force!

But Costa Rica doesn't have Hassin Nusraloot ...

God is Love and doen't need an Army to defend Him. Those who take the weapons are mistaken and are commanded by Lucifer.

Remember : They will end up with him.

Examples of the 'Police State' run by the General Security

الأسير المحرر أحمد اسماعيل يروي وقائع "اهانته من قبل الامن العام"

وأشار اسماعيل الى ان "التلفيق في هذه القضية بيّن وواضح لأن السؤال عن السيدة والاجابة عنه دام 3 دقائق فقط، ثم انتقل المحقق الى عمليات ترهيب سياسي وتهديدي بالقتل"، قائلاً " حقك رصاصة ومنزتك مثل الكلب من الشباك".

واضاف اسماعيل: رغم ان التحقيق حول المنشورات تعود لصلاحية دائرة الجرائم الالكترونية وليست من مهمات جهاز الأمن العام، فقد قام المحقق بمساءلتي عن عشرات "البوستات" وقد طلب باقفال صفحتي على فايسبوك ومنعي من التحدث بالسياسة وبشكل خاص عدم انتقاد دور حزب الله في سوريا، وعدم نقد السياسة الايرانية ".الأسير-المحرر-أحمد-اسماعيل-يروي-وقائع-اهانته-من-قبل-الامن-العام
