The lawmaker from Future Bloc urged the people hailing from the mainly Sunni northern city, Lebanon's second largest, to seize the occasion of the government's decision to recruit 12,000 new members in the Army and security apparatuses to demonstrate their true wish to protect the nation from terrorism.The Saudi grant was made as the Army battled takfiri militants from Syria's Nusra Front and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in the town of Arsal on Lebanon's eastern border with Syria.The five-day fighting in Arsal, which was overrun by the jihadists, claimed the lives of at least 17 troops, 60 militants and 42 civilians.
