Head of the Kataeb's Students and Youth Department, Zakhia Achkar, stressed that scores of martyrs hailed from the department during the party's struggle in defense of Lebanon, adding that the Kataeb's youth have always stood against malicious schemes to alter the country's identity.
“Those youth turned from combatants to martyrs so as to defend the Lebanese cause,” Achkar told the Kataeb website.
“The resistance of the Students and Youth Department against the Syrian occupation kept going for 15 years until the Cedar Revolution was achieved in 2005. Later, they pursued with their struggle to build a civilized, corruption-free State,” he added.
Achkar called on all the Kataeb students to participate in the celebration of the party’s Students and Youth Department foundation anniversary, Saturday at 17:00 in Bickfaya.
