European Council approves €6 million in support of Lebanese Army
The European Council has adopted an assistance measure worth €6 million to the benefit of the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF).
“The assistance measure will enhance the capabilities and the resilience of the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) to ensure the national security and stability of Lebanon through the enhancement of their military medical capacities, and the provision of equipment for the LAF’s operational personnel,” the European Peace Facility, which was created in 2021 to support partners around the world in the areas of military and defense, said in a statement.
“To achieve this objective, the assistance measure will finance healthcare equipment to support military medical services, and individual equipment,” the statement added.
The assistance was requested by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lebanon in October 2022.
