Politics - Qahwaji tours army units in Akkar, Ras Baalbeck.

NNA - 21/3/2012 - Lebanese Army Chief, General Jean Qahwaji, on Wednesday toured a number of military battalions and units in Akkar and Ras Baalbeck, and closely inspected field measures adopted to control borders and protect citizens' security.

The military commander did not fail to hail the sacrifices made by the army in defending national frontiers, curbing infiltration and smuggling operations, and protecting civil peace from terrorism, spying, and organized crimes networks.

"The strength of the army, not only does it lie within its strengths and weapons, but also within its holding onto national and military principles, regardless of the existing political juncture," he said.

He called the army for more readiness and utmost professionalism and objectivity.

Qahwaji also met with soldiers and military brass and gave necessary instructions.
