Qahwaji Inspects Troops in Dinniyeh, Says ‘Anti-Terror War’ to Continue

Army Commander General Jean Qahwaji on Thursday inspected army units in the Dinniyeh area of Bqaa Safrine, where a soldier was killed in an armed attack Monday, vowing that “the anti-terror war will continue.”

Lauding the troops’ efforts and the efforts of the Intelligence Directorate that “resulted in the swift arrest of all culprits,” Qahwaji hailed “popular support for the army in the North district.”

He also pledged that “the war against terrorism and efforts to eradicate its subversive cells wherever they may be will continue,” reassuring that “national stability will remain immunized thanks to the firm shield that the army is providing across the country.”

According to media reports, the cell that staged the attack had ties to the Islamic State terrorist group.
