Lebanese Army To Completely Control Borders With Syria

BEIRUT, Lebanon, British diplomatic sources in Beirut, said that, Lebanese Armed Forces will have complete control over its borders with Syria in 2019, local newspaper Asharq al-Awsat reported.

The Lebanese Armed Forces have improved their capabilities over the past 10 years, which turned them into a professional army able to protect Lebanon against terrorism, on the borders and inside Lebanon, the sources said.

The sources added that, Britain has offered, since 2012, a programme to train and equip the four land border forces of the Lebanese army.

This programme aims at allowing the Lebanese Armed Forces to have complete control over their country’s borders with Syria, to prevent any illegal operations through the borders, according to the sources.

They also noted that Britain has trained around 11,000 soldiers for military operations in populated areas, and 7,000 on the borders.
