Deputy Prime Minister Issam Abu Jamra thanked the Russian state on the grant of the MiG 29 fighter jets to Lebanon.

Abu Jamra said in a statement he issued on Tuesday, the MiG 29 is an advanced plane, but Lebanon needs more useful aid.

He also said that Lebanon in light of its situation, capabilities and defense strategy needed Cobra or Apache helicopters, bombs and SAM surface-to-air rockets.

Abu Jamra added that with such weapons and the "courageous" resistance fighters, "Lebanon could defend its land and fight an enemy, which [although it] possessed an advanced arsenal of fighter jets, tanks and rockets, [its weak point was in its] men who were afraid of death."
