Lebanon: Pres. Aoun commends Lebanese army on Arsal 'liberation'

Lebanese President Michel Aoun commended the Lebanese army on «the liberation» of the area near the town of Arsal on the Syrian-Lebanese border, when delivering a speech during the country's Army Day celebrations, at the Lebanese Army Military Academy in Fayadieh, Monday. Aoun said that the Lebanese troops «have all succeeded in dismantling numerous terrorist networks and cells, conducting pre... Еще-emptive strikes against terrorists and arresting dozens of them.» He went on to note that Lebanon's last victory was «the liberation of a major region on the eastern borders from the claws of dark organisations» as well as the re-establishment of security in the area. Lebanese Defence Minister Samir Mouqbel, Speaker of the Lebanese Parliament Nabih Berri and the country's Prime Minister Saad Hariri reportedly attended the event. In the last two years, the Lebanese Army Day celebrations were cancelled due to the political standoff, which was reportedly caused by the presidential vacuum.
