Al-Rahi Meets Qahwaji: Army Last Safe Haven for People


Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi held talks on Thursday with Army Commander General Jean Qahwaji on the latest developments in Lebanon ahead of Army Day.

Al-Rahi said on the occasion: “The military is the last safe haven for the people.”

“Its members are the true defenders of the nation,” he added from al-Diman.

Army Day falls on August 1.

Al-Rahi also offered his condolences to Qahwaji over the death of Major Rabih Kahil.

Kahil died on Wednesday after succumbing to wounds sustained in a shooting in the Aley District town of Bdadoun.

A statement issued by the Army Command said he was “shot by a criminal as he was passing in the Bdadoun area on July 26.”

Al-Rahi then threw a luncheon banquet in Qahwaji's honor.
