The Lebanese Army was presented the award for the best mobile phone application relating to security and safety in Arab countries at the Third Arab Governmental Summit in Dubai, the state-run National News Agency said Wednesday.
Education Minister Elias Bou Saab, who accepted the prize on behalf of the Lebanese government, said Lebanon was proud of the Army’s “multiple successes,” which were not limited to defending the country.
“This award is evidence of the Army’s high competence at all levels and its ability to grab the highest positions at the international level,” Bou Saab told NNA.
He called on all Lebanese factions to stand firm and united in support of the military in its battle against terrorist activities.
