This programme is addressing three key strands of overlapping security threats in Lebanon. The Lebanese Armed Forces National Security Assistance Programme addresses security threats originating from Syria, by equipping training and mentoring the Lebanese Armed Forces’ Border Regiments. The programme supports 1) the establishment and deployment of Land Border Regiments of the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) to monitor and interdict illegal cross border activity along the northern and eastern border between Lebanon and Syria. 2) Training Lebanese troops deployed at key confessional flashpoints at the Lebanese Armed Forces Internal Security Training Centre. 3) The work on Countering Violent Extremism is addressing threats emerging from vulnerable communities by de-conflicting these communities and de-radicalising at risk and marginalised youth.
