The UK reaffirmed its commitment to supporting the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) with the handover of 60 tonnes of Land Rover spare parts and tyres.

This contribution, comprising 225 engines, 737 new tyres and essential Land Rover spare parts is worth £2 million, and will facilitate the servicing, repairs and maintenance of over 440 military vehicles.

This package follows another donation of Land Rover spares worth more than £400,000 to the LAF through the UK’s Conflict, Stability and Security Fund, handed over in May last year.

Underlining the United Kingdom’s commitment to supporting the LAF in its efforts to maintain stability and security, the British Ambassador to Lebanon, Hamish Cowell, who oversaw the handover, said: “I am proud the UK is able to contribute to the Lebanese Armed Forces’ resilience and operational readiness. The LAF plays a critical role, under the leadership of General Joseph Aoun, in safeguarding Lebanon and its people amid the prevailing challenges, especially with the ongoing cross-border fighting in South Lebanon.”
