Lebanon's media leaders met Monday in Beirut to agree on a unified way to express support for the Lebanese Army, as fighting between militants and the military entered its fourth day.However, in light of ongoing events in northeastern Lebanon, a decision was made to prioritize creating common coverage of the Lebanese Army's struggle with Islamist gunmen and of the Iraqi issue, which is also a result of Muslim extremists.Those gathered agreed that media outlets should marginalize voices that defame or doubt the Army, with director of NBN's news department Qassem Soueid suggesting the adoption of a united logo or slogan in support of the military.The media representatives also agreed on the formation of a small committee to discuss means of supporting the Army and security forces, as well as methods of highlighting their struggle on a national level.
