Gen. Aoun: Lebanese army ready along Israel border

Lebanese Army chief Gen. Joseph Aoun said that the Army is determined to defend Lebanon’s rights “with all means and options available, no matter how much the provocative enemy escalates its threats.”
An Army statement detailed Aoun’s address to the leaders of the Third Intervention Regiment and to other Army members, during which the commander provided instructions on how to fend off threats facing Lebanon.
“The Army is ready on the southern border to face any Israeli military aggression, or any attempt to nibble at areas of the land or maritime borders,” he said.
Speaking of the upcoming parliamentary elections and playing down the Army’s role in the country’s political life, Aoun said that “the Army stands at the same remove from everyone involved in the upcoming parliamentary elections, and will perform its duty independently of politics.”
