AMMAN — Under directives from His Majesty King Abdullah, Supreme Commander of the Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army (JAF), the army has provided the Lebanese army with artillery weapons and tanks.

The military assistance was part of cooperation between the two armies, a military source said, quoted by the Jordan News Agency, Petra.

A ceremony was held in Beirut on Monday to receive the Jordanian donation, attended by a JAF delegation, the source said. 

Earlier this month, King Abdullah met with Lebanese Interior Minister Nouhad Machnouk over “means to strengthen bilateral ties in a manner that serves the interests of the two countries and their people”.
