The future of Lebanese leadership has been unclear in the wake of the shock resignation of former Prime Minister Hariri.
The army commander visited the military intelligence headquarters in the Mount Lebanon Governorate on Friday. During the visit, Aoun thanked the officers for their effective service and stressed the need for operational work ahead of the fight against terrorist sleeper cells in the country, especially amid the tense political situation in Lebanon.
The statement comes amid the resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri on Saturday while visiting Saudi Arabia. The former official cited concerns of him being assassinated like his father, former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, and accusing Iran of undermining stability in Lebanon and the region, with Tehran dentying the accusations as groundless.
