BEIRUT – Joseph Aoun, Lebanon’s newly-appointed military chief, said Friday that the Lebanese army must remain on guard against “Israeli ambitions and schemes” in the region.
Addressing army officers in Beirut, Aoun cited perceived threats to Southern Lebanon.
“I have full confidence that you will… be prepared to protect our southern border from the Israeli enemy’s sabotage,” he asserted.
Aoun also stressed Lebanon’s readiness to cooperate with the international community with a view to applying UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which was adopted following Lebanon’s 2006 conflict with Israel.
