The Council of the European Union (EU) announced on Thursday it will aid the Lebanese Army with €6 million (approximately $6.3 million), which was requested by Lebanon’s Minister of Foreign Affairs in October.

The financial assistance is intended to improve the Lebanese Army’s military medical capabilities and to provide them with equipment for their operational personnel.

“To achieve this objective, the assistance measure will finance healthcare equipment to support military medical services, and individual equipment,” according to a statement by the Council of the EU.

Within the past year, the Lebanese Army has received foreign aid from various countries. Back in July, they received $60 million from Qatar, as well as 150 military vehicles from the United States in August.
