Lebanese Armed Forces Commander, General Joseph Aoun, on Monday addressed the military and congratulated soldiers on their achievement providing security and order during the electoral process.
“It was the efforts that you’ve exerted and the responsibility that you’ve assumed, which provided a safe atmosphere to hold elections and to swiftly and professionally resolve problems,” General Aoun said.
“Despite the many crises that we’re going through, you were fully prepared to assume full responsibility and keep pace with the long election day with utmost awareness, wisdom, and discipline,” he added.
“Thanks to you, the democratic picture of this day has been completed. You have proven, once again, that you are worthy of trust, respect, and appreciation thanks to your will, steadfastness, and confidence in your institution and in your country,” the Army Commander concluded.
