Iran ready to equip Lebanese military with advanced aerial defence

Iran's Ambassador to Lebanon Mohammad-Reza Sheybani in a meeting with Lebanon military commander General Michele Soleyman on Saturday expressed Iran's readiness to equip Lebanese army with advanced aerial defence. Sheybani also called for promotion of joint cooperation in the field of defence and implementation of agreements previously signed in this concern. General Soleyman said Lebanese military support of the resistance during recent Israeli attack on Lebanon was one of the factors of resistance victory. He added the Zionist regime by attacking military bases tried to destroy solidarity between Lebanon military and the resistance, but because of integration in the military and the will for supporting the resistance in the army, the conspiracy could not succeed.
