UK Affirms Support for Lebanon's Military Institution

W300

British Chargé d’Affaires Ben Wastnage emphasized that the Lebanese army is the “sole legitimate defender of Lebanon,” as he reiterated the UK's support for the military institution, a press release said.

“I reaffirmed the UK’s support to the Lebanese Armed Forces as the sole legitimate defender of Lebanon, who successfully and highhandedly repelled an invasion by Daesh in 2014, and which is a cornerstone of Lebanese sovereignty,” said Wastnage after a meeting he held with Prime Minister Saad Hariri on Thursday.

“In particular, I welcomed the convening of the Higher Defense Committee and the Prime Minister’s backing for the Lebanese Armed Forces Commander,” he added.

Praising the PM, the UK Chargé d’Affaires stated: “I was honored to meet Prime Minister Hariri as he steers his government through this very important time for Lebanon.”

My boyfriend The Mystic always told me that he wished that all the countries helping the Lebanese army today would have helped in 2006, just like The Resistance helped the LAF in 2007 when it was fighting Fateh al Islam. He tells me the in 2007 The Resistance did not even hand over any of it's weapons to the Lebanese Army when the LAF was running low on ammo, complained when the Americans gave the LAF arms and ammo, so why should it now????!!!!!.

The thing the Western nations wants, is to let the Resistance hand over there weapons then take the weapons give them to Israel and let Lebanon be pacified with only Cessna Aircraft to fight against F-22,

This is the secret of Israel, if An Nahar wants Israel to take over Lebanon then your office will be the first one to burn assure you of that.
