Hezbollah’s MP Said Every Group In Lebanon Has The Right To Its Approach Against External Threats


The head of Hezbollah’s parliamentary bloc MP Mohamad Raad warned that the presidential vacancy would weaken Lebanon in the face of external threats, adding that “every group in Lebanon has the legal and constitutional right to have its approach towards this juncture.”

He added according to Hezbollah’s vision of power balances and national interest that they call on everyone to preserve security and stability in the country through expediting the accomplishment of this juncture and ultimately electing a new president.

Raad added: “From our side, we strive to keep the country ready for confronting the hostile junctures that are threatening us from an external enemy.”

“Constitutional vacancy weakens the national stance in the face of the external threats, that’s why we hope everyone will try to accomplish this juncture on time,” Raad went on to say.

As for the sea border demarcation file, the Hezbollah MP said his party will not accept that Israel “exploit gas looted from Palestine to sell it for high prices to Europe.”

“We will confront this juncture in the coming days,” he concluded.

In parallel, the Israeli Defense Minister warned that Hezbollah’s threats to attack the Israeli Gas will lead to a devastating war against Lebanon and the Lebanese citizens.

From his side, the Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi issued in his Sunday sermon a statement in regards to the election of a president.

He said that Lebanon doesn’t just need a president who only demarcates the state’s borders but is also able to confront provocations and challenges from internal forces “acting as if there were no inviolability, borders, or dignity for the state, legitimacy and the army.”
