“These vehicles, as well as radios, ammunition, and spare parts, are valued at nearly $58 million and were delivered as part of the US government’s Protected Mobility program, which supports the LAF’s border security and counter-terrorism missions,” the statement continued.

 

The embassy added that this contribution demonstrates the United States’ ongoing, long-term commitment to Lebanon’s security.

 

Since 2006, the United States has provided over $2.3 billion in assistance to Lebanon, it pointed out.
