Army chief Gen. Jean Kahwagi Friday said the military would remain the guarantor of Lebanon's stability in the face of security challenges and political uncertainty including the fate of the presidential election.Kahwagi said the Army was over the past months devoting its attention toward counter-terrorism and stressed that the military was stepping up these efforts in order to "apprehend these [terror] cells and tighten the noose around all suspect groups.He stressed that the Army only took action against parties targeting citizens and the military."You must meet the expectations on you and it is not a trivial matter that every concerned state assures its support for Lebanon's stability and the Lebanese Army," he said.He also denounced campaigns targeting the Army, saying the military enjoyed the backing of many states.
