In its account on Twitter, the Patriarchate affirmed that it “refuses to return to ready-made slogans, attempts to isolate, and compromise settlements”, and also refuses “to return to fabricating files against this or that group, choosing people as holocaust rams, and replacing justice with revenge.” According to the text of the tweet.
The Secretary-General of Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, had previously confirmed that “the real program of the Lebanese forces is the civil war that will lead to demographic change,” and this is what makes it “the biggest threat to the Christian presence in Lebanon.”
He revealed that Geagea “incited some old allies months ago to confront Hezbollah,” noting that “the Forces Party does not abandon the old language of war and the language of division, and it is the one who prepared the scene of the recent crime” in Tayouneh.
