QahwajiLebanese Army chief Gen. Jean Qahwaji on Friday confirmed that war against terrorist organizations continues, praising the Army's latest achievements in thwarting a "dream" to form a terrorist "Emirate" in Lebanon.

The Army Chief called on the Army to be on alert to face 'Israel', to commit to resolution 1701 in coordination with UNIFIL, and to protect the regional water from Israeli's attempt to set a buffer zone.

Qahwaji's remarks came in the Order of the Day marking Lebanon's 71st Independence Day.

Qahwaji expressed sorrow for failure to celebrate this national occasion on Saturday due to the presidency vacuum.

He hoped that a new president would be swiftly elected as "the election of a president would contribute to the consolidation of constitutional institutions and would revive the normal national life."
