Lebanon’s army has received a pair of A-29 Super Tucano aircraft from the U.S. government as part of the latter’s commitment to support the Lebanese armed forces, Reuters reported Wednesday.

Commander Gen. Joseph Aoun of the Lebanese army told Reuters the light attack aircraft’s combat and surveillance capacities will support military aerial missions of his home country.

Elizabeth Richard, U.S. ambassador to Lebanon, said the federal government has invested more than $1.5 billion in training services and equipment to support approximately 32,000 Lebanese troops over the past decade.

“We have recently announced another $120 million in foreign military financing, which brings the total investment in the LAF to over $160 million just this year,” added Richard, according to the report.
