Member of the “Strong Lebanon” Parliamentary Bloc, MP Asaad Dergham, stressed that “what happened today is a natural result of the security inaction for months.”
In an interview with OTV Station earlier today, he said: “We fear a project of sedition coming to Lebanon from Akkar. Voices are accusing us of what happened, knowing that neither the landlord belongs to the Free Patriotic Movement, nor does the fuel owner belong to us, but to the Future Movement, and they have relations with some deputies from the Future Movement.”
“We demanded two weeks ago that the Supreme Defense Council convenes for Akkar, and today we ask the security and judicial apparatuses to reveal all the facts,” Dergham underscored.
He concluded by calling on religious leaders in Akkar to “assume their responsibilities to ward off the sedition that is present and help the wounded.”
