Ceremony marks Syrian pullout from Lebanon

RAYAK, Lebanon - Surrendering to international pressure and Lebanese street protests, Syria ended its 29-year military presence in its smaller neighbor on Tuesday with a farewell ceremony near their shared border, where a Syrian commander told Lebanese troops: “Brothers in arms, so long.” The soldiers responded, “So long.”

A commander of Lebanese soldiers then addressed his words to the Syrians, saying: “Brothers in arms, thank you for your sacrifices.” His soldiers repeated, “Thank you for your sacrifices.”
