Spanish Army Raises Lebanese Flag in National Day Parade

  • Local

The flag of Lebanon was raised on Thursday during the military parade marking Spain's national day as a sign of solidarity and gratitude to the Lebanese soldiers who hoisted the Spanish flash during the border battle against ISIS in August to honor the Barcelona attack.

Military forces marched down Madrid's Paseo de la Castellana boulevard to mark the day Christophe Columbus first arrived in the Americas in 1492.
