Al-Rahi: We Hope Constitutional Authority Would Become Responsible for All Arms in Lebanon
Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi stated on Monday that the people are uneasy with the spread of arms outside the military institution.
He said before a Maronite delegation from Cyprus: “We congratulate the army on the occasion of Army Day … and we hope the constitutional political authority in Lebanon would become responsible for all the arms in Lebanon.”
“The safety of the people can only be achieved through constitutional institutions, the security forces, and army,” he stressed.
“We hope that the political authority would be able to unify its ranks and we thank the army for all of its sacrifices,” the patriarch added.
