A Shama Italian course for the Lebanese armed forces


Last Monday, at the base "Millevoi" of Shama, a course of Italian language and culture was opened in favor of the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF - Lebanese Armed Forces) financed with national funds and organized by the company "Dante Alighieri", an institute that deals with the dissemination of Italian language and culture in the world.

The course, divided into two classes, is intended for LAF officers, and will last about four months, at the end of which an exam is scheduled which will certify the level of knowledge of the Italian language acquired by the users.

The president of the company "Dante Alighieri" of the Tripoli headquarters (Lebanon) attended the inauguration - Dr. Cristina Foti, the commander of the South Lebanese sector (SLS - South Litani Sector) - Brigadier General Charbel Abou Khalil, and the Brigadier General Maurizio Riccò commander of the joint command of the western sector (JTF-L - Joint Task Force Lebanon).

General Abou Khalil thanked the Italian contingent for the laudable initiative, comparing it by relevance to all the other activities supporting the LAF, even the most purely military ones.

For his part, General Riccò expressed satisfaction with the course that adds to the numerous activities that the Italian blue helmets lead to the Lebanese army.
