Aoun sent a message on the occasion of the fourth anniversary of the battle of Fajr Al-Jouroud during which the Lebanese military retook the eastern border from the Islamic State.

Statements by the head of state called on the army and other uniformed forces to remain vigilant against any terrorist activity or scheme.

The head of state’s comments referred to a series of security incidents in recent weeks that have raised fears of latent sectarian tensions in the country.

These violent events are linked to the ongoing economic crisis, which has caused a collapse in living conditions and severe shortages of fuel and medicines.

Over the weekend, fuel disputes led to clashes between the Christian village of Maghdouche and the Shiite village of Ankoun Aina, located in the south.

The brawl for gasoline wounded six people and did not escalate due to the intervention of the army.
