The Army command criticized on Thursday “fabricated”
videos of gunmen allegedly fighting alongside troops in the southern
city Sidon, vowing to take judicial action.“At a time that the Lebanese army was fighting a fierce
battle against an armed group that was spreading sedition and meddling
with the country's security... A cheap political and media campaign was
targeting it,” a communique issued by the army said.It noted that “fabricated” videos, audio tapes and
pictures were released concerning the army in the town of Abra and
gunmen fighting alongside the troops.“The army command reminds that the intelligence bureau's
members wear civilian cloths... Any moral or security violations by any
soldier or army unit will be investigated and the appropriate measures
will be taken,” the statement said.The army command expressed regret that some local media
outlets reached a level of deception that any technical expert could
easily detect.It described the matter as a “media scandal,” warning that it will not remain mum over it.“We have the right to refer the matter to the competent judicial authority,” the statement said.
[ed note:Even the Lebanese Army is starting to call out the lying terrorists at Future TV and their MTV jihadist sidekicks.
