The Council addressed a plan to equip the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) with suitable weapons and voiced the importance of security forces taking firm measures against any security shortcomings in Lebanon,.

The HDC members have reportedly greed to allocate specific security tasks to the relevant ministries and authorities.

This comes after a street battle that shook the Borj Abi Haidar neighborhood in the Lebanese capital on August 24, pitting supporters of the Iranian backed Hezbollah against the pro-Syrian Al-Ahbash militants —also known as the Association of Islamic Charitable Projects. 3 people were killed in the clash including a Hezbollah senior official
