MALAK INSPECTS MILITARY UNITS IN SOUTH LITANI SECTOR

Army Chief-of-Staff, Major General Hatem Malak, on Friday inspected the military units deployed in South Litani sector, and visited in Sector’s Command in the southern town of Tyre.

Major General Hatam then inspected the 5th Infantry Brigade’s units in the areas of Chamaa and Labouneh, as well as Ras Naqoura off spot M2, where the Israeli enemy is constructing the separation wall.

During his meeting with army officers and military men, the chief of staff hailed their efforts and sacrifices in carrying out the army’s main task in defense of the southern border against the Israeli enemy and maintaining its stability in cooperation with UNIFIL forces, in implementation of Resolution #1701.

Major General Hatam reiterated the Lebanese official and national position that rejects the Israeli enemy’s construction of the separation wall on any Lebanese spot, or any part of the Lebanese territories.

He added that the strength of the unified Lebanese position is based on national and international maps, which affirm Lebanon’s right to its land and maritime borders.

“The army shall not waive such a right under any circumstances,” the chief of staff concluded.
