The Media Department of the “Lebanese Forces” party pointed out that journalist Amal Khalil mentioned in her article titled “Lebanese Forces Incite… and Ein Ibel Seeks International Protection” in the newspaper “Al-Akhbar” that “dozens who organized the protest in Ein Ibel fell for the incitement of the leader of the Lebanese Forces party, Samir Geagea, who accused Hezbollah from the very beginning of committing the crime.”
The department stated in a statement: “Based on what was mentioned, we raise three fundamental questions:
First: Isn’t Ein Ibel situated in the heart of the military and security region of Hezbollah?
Second: Can any rational mind conceive a premeditated and orchestrated crime of this magnitude and professionalism in the heart of Hezbollah’s military and security region without its knowledge?
Third: Can anyone explain to us how a group of vehicles and individuals can move, kidnap martyr Elias Hesrouni, kill him over the span of an hour, without any security apparatus knowing anything about what happened?”
The department considered that “all indicators point to Hezbollah’s involvement in this crime, and this is the least that can be doubted, if not certain, until further notice.”
