Today, Saturday, Lebanese President Michel Aoun called on Lebanese army officers to stand up to conspirators against the security of the country
Lebanon at home and abroad.
In a statement congratulating the anniversary of the establishment of the army, Aoun called on the Lebanese “to rally around the army and preserve their national unity, which constitutes the solid foundation for building Lebanon and the door to exit from the dark tunnel.”
Aoun said, according to the Lebanese presidency’s page on Twitter today: “This holiday cannot lose sight of the Lebanese people’s conscience and their pride in the institution that made sacrifices and offered martyrs to maintain security and stability and strengthen democratic foundations in Lebanon.”
He added that despite the harsh economic and financial conditions, “everyone feels that the army is still the surest guarantee of stability and national unity, pointing out that the commitment of the international community to support the army institution is a constant sign of its confidence in its role in the army.”
Protecting the Lebanese entity and its constitutional institutions.
Aoun directed his words to the soldiers, saying: “You are the watchful eye on the homeland and the chest that protects freedoms and the foundations of the democratic state stipulated in the constitution and I entrust you with the task of defending it.”
In turn, the former Prime Minister of the Lebanese government, Saad Hariri, stressed that the Lebanese army remains the title of loyalty to the state and sacrifice for the sake of Lebanon, despite its continuing fall into the abyss of political confusion and economic and living crises. Salute to our army on the anniversary of its founding.
