This EU-funded project with a total amount of €6 million aims to improve the stability and security of Lebanon, by strengthening the capabilities of the LAF to deploy in the south of the country. Expertise France, the French public agency for international technical assistance, has implemented the project between October 2019 and June 2022. 

The Headquarters includes all functions and services needed for the Lebanese Armed Forces in terms of command, operations, accommodation and logistics on around 6,000 built square metres. Up to 310 personnel can be accommodated in this fully equipped infrastructure.
