Commander of the Lebanese Armed Forces, General Jean Qahwaji, said during a dinner in his honour in Rayfoun, that the performance of the army protected state institutions from decay.
"Safeguarding national stability created a passage to fill the long presidential vacuum with the election of General Michel Aoun for president," said Qahwaji during the feast held in his name by Henry Sfeir.
"The army succeeded in breaking the spear of terrorism at our borders and uproot most of its cells domestically, thwarting off its destructive plans that aimed at dragging regional chaos into Lebanon."
The General confirmed that the LAF was in very good condition, despite the many dangers that continue lurking around.
"A country that has held out during the past five years in the shadow of the Syrian war, can withstand all future dangers."
