Lebanon needing Iran’s military help


A member of Lebanon’s Parliament says the country’s army is in dire need of weaponry, urging Beirut to seriously consider Iran’s offer to supply the Lebanese army with necessary military equipment.

Hezbollah parliament member Nawaf Mousawi was quoted as saying by the Lebanese Daily Star newspaper “We call on the Lebanese and the Lebanese government to work seriously and in a responsible manner with the proposal from the Islamic Republic of Iran to assist the Lebanese army.”

Earlier on September 30, Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani said in Beirut that Tehran was ready to provide military equipment to the Lebanese army for the fight against terrorism.

Mousawi further expressed hope that the Lebanese government “would study the matter very seriously and make a decision because the army is in need of appropriate weapons to face the Takfiri terrorist group.”
