BEIRUT, May 22 (Xinhua) -- The Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) Commander Joseph Aoun said on Friday that LAF retains its right to confront the "Israeli enemy's schemes" and persistent breaches of Lebanon's national sovereignty, a statement by LAF reported.
"We reiterate once again our right to completely recover the farms of Shebaa, the hills of Kfarshouba, the northern part of the Ghajar town and the territories with regard to which Lebanon maintains a claim," Aoun said on the occasion of Liberation Day.
Aoun mentioned the importance of the historic achievement when the Israeli enemy withdrew from Lebanon in 2000.
"It is an achievement that wouldn't have seen the light has it not been for the steadfastness and resistance of our people and the insistence on the right to liberate all our land," he added.
Aoun urged LAF members to commit themselves to serve the country, and defend it against all dangers.
