Geagea says Hezbollah implicating Lebanon in 'most dangerous war'


Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea has described Hezbollah, without naming it, as “a group that does not care about the state and is daily seeking to destroy its pillars.”

“We have become living in a land lacking order. Our state is hijacked and our decision is in the hands of others, with a group allowing itself to implicate us in the most dangerous war in defiance of the will of an entire people,” Geagea said in a speech marking Holy Week.

The LF leader also lamented that Hezbollah “can impede justice whenever it wants, as happened in the port case, and is blocking the presidential vote unless we respond to its demands.”

“It is also capable of allying with corruption everywhere to cover up for its non-Lebanese scheme and in order to seize control of the state,” Geagea charged.

Hezbollah had activated Lebanon’s southern front with Israel on October 8 in solidarity with the Palestinians and the Hamas Movement following the latter’s unprecedented attack on southern Israel and the war that ensued.

There have been near-daily clashes between Hezbollah and Israel ever since, resulting in the death of at least 326 people in Lebanon, most of them Hezbollah fighters but also 57 civilians.

Tens of thousands of people have also been displaced by the violence in Lebanon's south and Israel's north.
