Commander-in-chief of the Lebanese Army

"Kahwagi also said the Lebanese Army would continue to confront Israel until the liberation of the occupied Shebaa Farms, Kfar Shouba and Northern part of the village of Ghajar.“Confrontation will continue with this enemy to foil its criminal plans and until the liberation of the last grain of sand of our occupied land in Shebaa Farms, Kfar Shouba Hills and the Northern part of Ghajar,” he said.
The Army commander also vowed to face up to Israel “with all the powers available” in the event the Jewish state threatened border villages “under the pretext of the presence of gunmen here or there.”
He said the Army would "stand by the people" in their resistance to block Israeli ambitions in Lebanon’s natural wealth – be it within its territorial waters or the exclusive economic zone."   Is that why the defense of Lebanon in 2006 was left in the hands of volunteers while the Lebanese Army napped?  (thanks Basim)
