Citizens, young and old, Christian and Muslim, got a taste of life in the shoes of a commando over the weekend with a grueling hike side-by-side with Lebanese Army soldiers. Nearly 2,000 people walked for 20 kilometers with the military's commando unit across the picturesque district of Jezzine in south Lebanon Sunday, the second such outdoor hiking event organized by the Army.Hikers, led by Commando Regiment chief Brig. Khalil Harfoush, Jezzine's mayor, welcomed participants and said the event was meant to be a message of solidarity from the people to the Army, and also Lebanon's quintessential natural environs.Once Col. Edward Ibrahim, representing Army Commander Gen. Jean Kahwagi on the hike, gave the signal to start, the multitude of hikers kicked off their discovery tour of Jezzine.
