Lebanese Forces rejects charges leveled by Hezbollah, Amal Movement

The Lebanese Forces on Thursday rejected accusations made by Hezbollah and Amal Movement that held the party responsible for the security events that broke out in Tayouneh today and the intentional killing of civilians.

In a statement, the LF said the root to today’s events was Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s incitement against Beirut port blast investigator, judge Tarek Bitar.

“Accusing the Lebanese Forces is refused, and it aims to deviate attention from Hezbollah’s invasion of this region,” the statement read.
