BEIRUT: President Michel Sleiman vowed Wednesday to put an end to a spate of incidents that have further undermined security in the country.

Sleiman, according to a statement from his office, met caretaker Interior Minister Marwan Charbel and Army commander Gen. Jean Kahwagi to follow up on the recent security developments in the country.

Sleiman followed up on the deadly Sunday shooting along the Lebanon-Israel border, the two “terror attacks” against the Army in south Lebanon, Tuesday’s car bombing in the northeast and the rocket attacks that hit a military barracks in the city of Hermel.

The president, according to the statement, reiterated the “need to confront these attacks strongly and decisively and to pursue and arrest those responsible for them, including their masterminds.”
