BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – The leader of the Lebanese Forces, Samir Geagea, rebuffed the victory in ‘Arsal that was dedicated to the Lebanese people by Hezbollah’s Secretary General, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.
“If Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah wants to dedicate something of value to the Lebanese, let him hand over his weapons to the Lebanese army and engage in political action, the same as we all did. This step has been overdue for 27 years now,” Geagea claimed in an Al-Hayat interview.
“It is rather one episode in the series of battles that it has been fighting for the past six years in Syria to shore up (Syrian President) Bashar al-Assad,” Geagea added, as quoted by Naharnet online.
Geagea has been an outspoken opponent of Hezbollah since his release from prison in 2005 for war crimes he committed during the Lebanese Civil War.
