Lebanese Armed Forces Participate in Small Unit Operations, Marksmanship Seminars with U.S. Army Counterparts

Earlier this month, soldiers from the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) participated in two seminars conducted by personnel from the U.S. Army Central Command. The first seminar focused on small unit military operations, while the second focused on advanced marksmanship techniques. Both seminars included theoretical briefings and practical exercises. These seminars come as part of the U.S. government's support for the LAF as it fulfills its role of safeguarding Lebanon's borders and its citizens. Since 2006, the United States has provided over $526 million in assistance to the LAF. The United States is committed to building the capabilities of the LAF and it will continue to support the government of Lebanon and the Lebanese Armed Forces as they continue their efforts to safeguard the stability, unity and sovereignty of Lebanon.
