Hezbollah is determined to sabotage Lebanon’s ties

At the same time that the Saudi ambassador, Walid Al-Bukhari, was hosting an Iftar banquet in his home in honor of Prime Minister Najib Mikati and a number of political and diplomatic figures, Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah was launching accusations, slander, and campaigns aimed at sabotaging Arab-Arab ties.

What was remarkable before giving such statements was the reconciliation meeting that Nasrallah sponsored at the end of last week at a Ramadan breakfast between the head of the Free Patriotic Movement, Gebran Bassil, and the head of the Marada movement, Sleiman Franjieh, as if by his behavior he wanted to emphasize that he is the sole command politically in the Lebanese arena.

According to political sources, Hezbollah appeared as a beneficiary of the return of the ambassadors of the Gulf countries to Beirut, because it believes that the situation in Lebanon is fine in light of its control, presence, and control over the joints of the state, and that it has become a fundamental element and reality in the country, which is a dangerous matter.

According to the sources, the party is now acting on the plot, so if its interests need an attack, it attacks, and if it sees an opportunity to temper the mood and reach a ceasefire, it does so.

As a result, the sources characterize Hezbollah as a disease that has penetrated the Lebanese body as well as all aspects of power.

According to the sources, the party is presently in the expectation stage of the outcome of the Vienna nuclear discussions, the outcomes of which have not yet been determined owing to the necessity for further negotiations. In the meanwhile, it is watching the outcome of the Saudi-Iranian indirect conversations and the cooling that is taking place, particularly in Yemen, and is waiting for an instruction from his Iranian reference to respond appropriately.

“Currently, we cannot determine if Hezbollah is in a comfortable or crisis situation,” the sources add, “since the nuclear file regulates this reality and the outcomes of discussions in this file are still murky so far, and the vision has not cleared.”

However, these sources confirm that the party seeks and desires to hold elections as soon as possible, and that it is making every effort to do so because it is confident that it will have an important representation in the new parliament, and that it will then be able to demonstrate to the Arab and international communities that, despite your war against us and our designation as a terrorist organization, the Lebanese people chose us.
