President Aoun: Probe Won’t Target Politicians…

Lebanese President Michel Aoun has told his visitors that the investigation he has ordered into the 2014 kidnap and execution of the Lebanese soldiers will not target politicians: “It is a purely military investigation and it does not concern ex-PM Tammam Salam or politicians,” wrote al-Mustaqbal newspaper on Sunday.

The Lebanese President Michel Aoun call came after Lebanon recovered the bodies of nine Lebanese soldiers who were kidnapped by Al-Nusra terrorist group, in 2014, before being executed.

“The probe in question is a normal and expected measure that comes after the end of any battle and aims to identify the flaws that marred the battle without any political or personal motives,” the president was quoted by his visitors.
