The Lebanese Army command and the people of the Ghobeiry area buried the martyr sergeant Muhammad Al-Husseini, who was martyred earlier Saturday after being shot during clashes with smugglers at the northern border.
The funeral began with a ceremony honoring the martyr in front of the Central Military Hospital, where a group of army music saluted him.
He was awarded medals of war, wounded, and military appreciation of the bronze degree.
Then a prayer was held on his body in the cemetery of the two martyrs – Al-Ghobeiri, in the presence of a crowd of citizens and comrades in arms.
Brigadier General P.S.C. Georges El-Khaouly, representing the Minister of National Defense Maurice Slim and the Commander of the Army, General Joseph Aoun, delivered a speech in which he praised the morality of the martyr and his dedication to performing his military duty.
He said: “The greatness of the sacrifice, as Martyr Sergeant Muhammed Al-Husseini bled a brave hero who joined the convoy of our righteous martyrs, after he was assassinated by the hand of crime while performing his national duty with firmness and determination, in defense of Lebanon and the lives of the Lebanese.”
Al-Husseini’s body was transferred on Sunday from the Central Military Hospital to Rawdat Al-Shaheedeen cemetery – Al-Ghubairi, where the funeral was held.
