Lebanese Army gives a nod to Women's Day

Lebanese Army in a subtle way just acknowledged Women's Day with a quote from the head of the Army himself General Joseph Aoun which translated into "Women have played a valuable role in armies throughout the ages (begin quote) "we anticipate improving this role getting to the point where she (the woman) would be part of the fighting forces". Do note that the Lebanese army has women already in its ranks - including officers (some of them high ranked). I suppose, this coming from a society with several speeds, that the gesture needed to be acknowledged!
