“Path of Dignity” or “Darb Al-Karama” is the name of one of the latest Lebanese Army combat exercise conducted in Oyoun Al-Siman by the Air Assault Regiment with the participation of the Lebanese Air Force, the 1st Anti-tank Regiment and the 1st Armored Regiment. The exercise simulated the interception of a hostile armored unit which attempted to penetrate friendly lines by laying an ambush and destroying it.
Of course Elite Group Lebanon was on the spot as usual and delivers us some nice photo shots:

“In the presence of members of the Military Council and the Vice Chief of Staff, a number of senior military officers and military attaches of several countries accredited in Lebanon, a combat maneuver was held by the Lebanese Army Commandos in Hamat, simulating an attack by a terrorist group infiltrated to the beach preparing to carry out subversive activities within the country. The participants to this maneuver were units from the Air Force and Navy, medical care and anti-armor, engineering and armored regiments, conducting landings and air evacuations, firing heavy and medium-sized weapons from tanks, mortars, helicopters and boats in addition to the use of explosives.”
