Hizbullah, Amal urge against rallies, gunfire, call for 'dialogue, rapprochement'
Hizbullah and the Amal Movement urged supporters Wednesday not to stage motorbike rallies while calling on all political parties to “return to the approach of dialogue and rapprochement in order to overcome the suffocating economic and financial situation.”
“While the Amal Movement and Hizbullah understand the sentiments of their supporters after all the incitement, polarization and provocations that preceded the parliamentary elections, and as they express gratitude for all the displays of joy and celebration over the results of these elections, they call on their supporters not to stage motorbike rallies… so that some fanatic or nervous individuals do not take things to places that distort the electoral success,” the two parties said in a joint statement.
They also called on their supporters “not to carry out any behavior or action that might be labeled as a provocation against the supporters of other political sides and parties.”
“The electoral juncture is behind us and today all parties must return to the approach of dialogue and rapprochement in order to overcome the suffocating economic and financial situation,” Hizbullah and Amal added.
Moreover, the two parties called on security agencies to “rein in the phenomenon of (celebratory) gunfire and arrest violators, no matter what side they belong to, in order to preserve civil peace.”
They also called for “the arrest of those who opened fire at the supporters of the Amal Movement and Hizbullah over the past hours.”
