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 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.”
