BEIRUT: A communique issued by the Lebanese Army Command Tuesday warned Army personnel and civilians against selling new military uniforms.

The statement directs “the Army leadership, all citizens and owners of shops” to stop “trading new military uniforms.”

Army uniforms are widely available to non-military personnel in shops throughout Lebanon.

The statement advised that appropriate legal proceedings would be taken against those involved in the “trafficking or circulation” of the uniforms.

New military uniforms were presented to the Army by President Michel Aoun on Nov. 21.
