The Lebanese Army has received a new aid shipment from Jordan, the army’s Orientation Directorate said in a statement.
A delegation from the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) Command Unit received the shipment, comprised of 8 tonnes of food and medical supplies, from a Jordanian military plane at Beirut-Rafik Hariri International Airport on Thursday afternoon.
The aid was received in the presence of Jordanian Ambassador to Lebanon Walid Al-Hadid and the representative of LAF Commander Gen. Joseph Aoun.
This is the latest of six aid packages donated by the Jordanian authorities as emergency assistance to Lebanon and its army, which is being hit hard by the worst economic crisis in the country’s history.
Jordan, which pledged to send medical assistance to Lebanon following the deadly Akkar Explosion back in August, sent 5.5 tonnes of medical aid to support Lebanon’s military last Saturday.
