Lebanon's Defense Ministry revealed Friday that it will establish a new military unit to help guard a 100-kilometer section of the border with Syria, after receiving a $10 million grant from the British government for training and equipment. Britain's acting ambassador to Lebanon, Hugo Shorter, met with Defense Minister Samir Moqbel to formally announce the grant. Shorter expressed how inspiring it was to see the courage of the regiments who are on the front line, protecting the country's border.The promised aid adds to a £100 million-package pledged by the U.K. to help displaced Syrian refugees in their war-torn country and its neighbors, of which Lebanon will receive up to £29 million.
