Geagea hits back at 'corrupt, liar and crook' Bassil


Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea on Friday snapped back at Free Patriotic Movement chief Jebran Bassil over his latest remarks against the LF, a few hours before the country enters electoral silence for Sunday’s parliamentary elections.

“On what did Jebran Bassil rely to say that those voting for the LF would be voting for the Israeli enemy and Daesh? He is not relying on anything but his sick mentality,” Geagea said in an interview on Lebanon’s MTV.

“Jebran Bassil is a corrupt, liar and crook and we’re relying on facts, whereas what is he depending on when he accuses us?” the LF leader added.

“The corrupts and liars are the FPM and Hizbullah has a project that is bigger than Lebanon,” Geagea wen on to say.

He pointed out that the main issue in the country today is “treating the disease” and “this disease is Hizbullah.”

“Based on this, I say that anyone voting for Hizbullah, the FPM and their allies would be voting for the extension of the situation that we are living in,” Geagea added.

He also charged that “intentionally or unintentionally, Hizbullah, the FPM and their allies are destroying the country.”

“An opposition force that is capable of confronting this destructive scheme for the country must be formed,” Geagea urged.
