Army Chief, General Joseph Aoun, inspected on Saturday a number of military units deployed in the city of Tripoli, stressing that the country's security and stability are well-preserved.
"Protecting national security and stability is our utmost priority," Aoun said reassuringly, as he was briefed on the work of various military units stationed in the region and the tasks carried out to maintain security and stability in the city.
The Army Chief called for "intensifying efforts and measures to consolidate this stability and maintain full readiness to keep up with national deadlines, most prominent of which are the parliamentary elections scheduled for upcoming spring."
