In a meeting between Lebanon's caretaker National Defense Minister, Maurice Sleem, and the French Defense Minister, Sébastien Lecornu, the officials discussed the ongoing developments in South Lebanon and the Gaza Strip.

During a phone call, Lecornu stressed that France communicates with the international community to address the situation in Gaza. He emphasized the importance of safeguarding Lebanon from any potential consequences arising from events in Palestinian territories.
