Saudi Supports Lebanese Army with $1 b Cash

Posted by Arab Defense Industry on Sunday, August 24, 2014

Saudi Arabia has just decided to give the Lebanese military $1 billion in military aid, mostly in ammunition and small arms. This is on top of the $3 billion grant for equipment given to the Lebanese Armed Forces by the Saudis back at the tail end of 2013. This compares with about $500 million provided by the US from 2009 to 2013.

Although the Lebanese defense budget only amounts to just $1.2 billion annually — less than a third of the total amount of Saudi military aid — the Saudi government is now apparently attempting a new and novel campaign to armor Lebanese vehicles entirely in Saudi currency (at least metaphorically speaking).
