BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – The Lebanese Army commander, General Joseph ‘Aoun, stated on Tuesday that his forces are ready to confront Israeli attack in the southern part of the country.

“We are committed to preserving the safety of our southern border,” General ‘Aoun stated, adding that the Lebanese Army is ready to “confront any Israeli attack.”

“The Lebanese Army will carry on with the mission of defending Lebanon and safeguarding its security and stability no matter the price and sacrifices,” ‘Aoun stated, as quoted by Naharnet online.

“Under Resolution 1701, we are committed to preserving the stability of the southern border in cooperation with U.N. forces, but at the same time, we are ready to confront any Israeli attack on Lebanon,” the Army Commander concluded.
