BEIRUT: A United States military official visited Lebanon’s Army chief Gen. Jean Kahwagi Tuesday to offer condolences over the killing of two Lebanese soldiers in the eastern town of Arsal last week, a statement on the Army’s website said.

U.S. military attaché Colonel David Brener, heading an official delegation, expressed deepest condolences for LAF personnel killed, said the statement.

The ambush that targeted the military on Friday killed Sergeant Ibrahim Zahraman, 32, who was laid to rest Saturday afternoon in his hometown of Akkar, north Lebanon and Captain Pierre Bashalani, 31, who was laid to rest in the Zahle town of Mreijet Sunday.

U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon Maura Connelly called Kahwagi Monday and offered condolences over the killings, voicing her country’s appreciation for the efforts of the Lebanese government as well as the Lebanese Army and the Internal Security Forces to counter violent extremists who threaten the safety of all those in Lebanon.
