The Lebanese Army is set to receive 300 tonnes of aid from Egypt this week.

Per the instructions of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, an Egyptian warship will deliver the aid to the Port of Beirut, where the Lebanese military will be waiting to receive it.

Egypt‘s ambassador to Lebanon, Yasser Alawi, said in a statement on Monday that the ship will be loaded with food supplies prepared in coordination with the Lebanese Armed Forces Command, to meet the Lebanese Army‘s needs and support it in facing Lebanon’s exceptional circumstances.

The Army has been facing difficult challenges due to the ongoing crisis in Lebanon, which has prompted its command to seek international support with France’s help.

“The Egyptian support for Lebanon and the army will continue until Lebanon overcomes this crisis,” Alawi stressed.

He added that the successive aid packages sent to Lebanon are evidence of Egypt‘s “keenness to preserve stability in Lebanon” and of Egypt’s persistence in “supporting the institutions of the national state in brotherly Lebanon, at the heart of which is the Lebanese Army.”

Egypt had sent tonnes of medical and food supplies to the Lebanese Army aboard a plane back in February, as part of the Egyptian air bridge set up following the Beirut Port explosion in August.

This came around a month after 3 Egyptian planes landed in Beirut, delivering more than $500,000’s worth of medicine, medical supplies, and baby milk.
