Welcome to Major General Khalil Kanaan's official website.
The site is a tribute to a remarkable man, exceptional officer
 and martyr-symbol of the Lebanese Army.
His memory remains alive
in the hearts of all those who valued his presence in their lives
as a husband, a brother, an uncle, a friend, a comrade and a commander.
On his arm, he wore the emblem of the 5th Brigade which read: "رمادي حياة للبنان".
May his sacrifice and the sacrifice of his fellow Lebanese Army martyrs
truly "give life to Lebanon".
