Shabtini: to meet call of duty, support Army in its fateful battle

OCTOBER 27, 2014 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Minister of Displaced Alice Shabtini called in a statement on Monday on all the Lebanese to stand as one and upgrade to a higher level of common sense instead of slipping into the abyss of rivalry and hatred and narrow political and personal conflicts.

“The Lebanese Army is fighting a new heroic battle in the face of organized attacks costing the blood of its soldiers for the unity of Lebanon, and is offering new sacrifices for its national task to defeat terrorist outposts and nip strife in the bud,” she said.

The Minister noted that “what is required from all of us at this stage is to meet the call of duty and stand by our military institution in its fateful battle. We hope that Tripoli and the North will be as ever supportive of the Lebanese army and rejecting for terrorism.”
