BEIRUT: The head of General Security, Maj. Gen. Abbas Ibrahim, vowed Thursday to exhaust all efforts until terrorism is uprooted in Lebanon.

“General Security underlines the need to move forward with a crackdown on terrorism, until it is uprooted,” Ibrahim said during a live-fire drill in Hamat, near the northern city of Tripoli.

“[General Security] which commits to pioneering administrative and security work, stresses the need for integration with fellow security and military institutions in the country to preserve civil peace and stability,” he said.

“We won’t allow Lebanon to turn into a terrorism hub or a corridor for countries around the world,” Ibrahim added.

He vowed to “confront enemy schemes” in cooperation with the U.N. peacekeepers in south Lebanon.

The morning exercise was attended by the country’s top security officials, including Ibrahim and acting police chief, Brig. Gen. Roger Salem.

Also present was the commander of the U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon, Maj. Gen. Paolo Serra.

“Today you have performed a unique combat maneuver that qualifies you to become part of an elite force with distinctive tasks,” Ibrahim told the participants of the training.
