Lebanese Armed Forces

The Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) (Arabic: القوات المسلحة اللبنانية | Al-Quwwāt al-Musallaḥa al-Lubnāniyya) or Forces Armées Libanaises (FAL) in French, also known as the Lebanese Army (Arabic: الجيش اللبناني or "Armée libanaise" in French), is the military of the Lebanese Republic. It consists of three branches, the army, the air force, and the navy. The motto of the Lebanese Armed Forces is "Honor, Sacrifice, Loyalty" (Arabic: "شرف · تضحية · وفاء" - Sharaf.Tadhia.Wafa'). The Lebanese Armed Forces symbol consists of a Lebanon cedar tree surrounded by two laurel leaves, positioned above the symbols of the three branches: the ground forces represented by the two bayonets, the navy represented by an anchor, and the air force represented by two wings.

Outline of Lebanon

The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to Lebanon:

Lebanon – sovereign country located along the eastern edge of the Mediterranean Sea in Southwest Asia and the Middle East. Lebanon, due to its tense sectarian diversity, has a unique political system, known as confessionalism, in which each religious group is allocated a fixed number of seats in parliament. The country enjoyed a period of relative calm and prosperity before the devastating Lebanese Civil War from 1975 to 1990. In 2005, a wave of demonstrations known as the Cedar Revolution ended the 30-year Syrian occupation of Lebanon. By early 2006, a considerable degree of stability had been achieved throughout much of the country and Beirut's reconstruction was almost complete, but a debilitating 2006 war and internal strife caused significant economic damage and loss of life. Lebanon has shown remarkable resilience to the Late 2000s recession.
