Qahwaji: LA to Face Terrorism with Cutting Sword
Lebanese Army [LA] commander Gen. Jean Qahwaji pledged confirmed Friday that " the LA's posture will not remain defensive in its war against terrorism."
In an interview with as-Safir Lebanese daily, Qahwaji said: "The LA will not simply remain a deterrent Army, but will go in for [offense] with a cutting sword."
His remarks came a day after the Lebanese Army drove extremists out of two strategic hilltop positions along the northeastern frontier with Syria in a preemptive operation that left at least three militants killed and four soldiers lightly wounded.
Qahwagi stressed that the Lebanese Army will remain the sole guarantor of Lebanon's stability.
"The Army will protect the country from any danger. Lebanon won't be a supportive environment for terrorism," he said.
"We will not let takfiri terrorists defeat us," Qahwagi vowed, adding that the war against extremists was open-ended.
