BEIRUT, June 8 (MENA) – Lebanese President Michel Aoun stressed on Saturday that there is no tolerance with terrorism, noting that he will not go easy on those who find justifications for assailants of the state sovereignty and its security institutions.
Aoun made the remarks as part of a speech he delivered on the 158th anniversary of the establishment of the Internal Security Forces (ISF) directorate, which falls on June 9.
The Lebanese president pointed out to the sacrifices made by the ISF personnel, adding that they form, along with the army forces and other security troops, a “shield that protects civil peace and preserves stability.”
The terrorist attack that took place on the eve of Eidul Fitr in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli, leaving two ISF elements and two army forces dead, constitutes a motive for insistence on not tolerating with terrorism, Aoun said.
