Jumblatt: I ask Hezbollah to control southern borders, Raad’s words pointless

Former head of the Progressive Socialist Party, Walid Jumblatt, considered that “the Palestinian people are resisting the occupation, and I do not understand some statements from some of the opposition leaders in Lebanon about the destruction of Israel. We do not need a Jewish-Islamic conflict.”

Jumblatt said in an interview with MTV: The Palestinian people who are struggling for freedom have the right to obtain weapons and support, and I advise the Fatah movement and the Palestinian Authority to return to their origins, and enough of the imaginary authority that has no relation to reality.

He continued, “I ask Hezbollah to control the southern region more than ever before, especially from some organizations that may infiltrate the occupied territories. I will communicate with the party, and Raad’s words that the time has come for Israel’s disappearance are pointless.”

He believed that “matters have gone beyond Le Drian and the sponsoring countries, and the boycotters must attend so that the government can be present and meet. Enough of the bidding and “name with plus or minus” for the presidency.”

In response to a question, he said: “I communicated with Berri and Mikati and I am ready for any move. The most important thing now is to control the south and not exceed certain borders.”

The border areas in southern Lebanon are experiencing tension, so that the National News Agency in Marjayoun reported that most of the schools in the districts of Marjayoun and Bint Jbeil will close their doors tomorrow, in view of the current conditions and to avoid any potential danger.

At the same time, the region is witnessing a slight displacement of residents for fear of escalation by the Israeli enemy.

Meanwhile, two sources close to Hezbollah and a security source said that a Hezbollah member was killed in an Israeli bombing of southern Lebanon today, Monday 10/9/2023.
