Sfeir: Threats Unleashed by Hizbullah ‘Surprising’


Maronite Patriarch Nasrallah Sfeir expressed surprise at threats unleashed by Hizbullah, particularly by head of Hizbullah’s parliamentary bloc MP Mohammed Raad, without naming him.

“The country cannot carry on under this escalating climate where one (political) camp threatens the other,” Sfeir told al-Mustaqbal newspaper in remarks published Tuesday.

“The country continues to exist on the basis of understanding, cooperation and harmony among the people and power sharing,” he added.

“People have a right to know the truth of who is behind those assassinations,” Sfeir insisted.
