Lebanon’s Army commander, Gen. Joseph Aoun, has said that the country’s security is “better than ever.”

Aoun’s comments came on Thursday during a visit to the 3rd Infantry Brigade and 3rd Land Frontier Regiment in the West Bekaa, where he was briefed on the security measures taken by the units.

Aoun lauded their “efforts and sacrifices” mainly during last month’s parliamentary elections, but called for intensified security measures “to protect citizens and for more preparedness to confront any violators.”

He said Lebanon’s security is “better than ever,” due to the Army’s “accuracy and professionalism” in carrying out its missions across Lebanon.
