Hizbullah Warns of Gaza War Impact on Region's Stability in Talks with U.N.'s Plumbly

Loyalty to Resistance bloc MP Ali Fayyad on Friday discussed with United Nations Special Coordinator for Lebanon Derek Plumbly the ongoing Israeli war on the Gaza Strip and its repercussions on the region's stability.

"Fayyad expressed concern over the repercussions of the Israeli massacres and violence in Gaza,” the state-run National News Agency reported.

The Hizbullah MP also underscored the war's influence on stability in the region, said the NNA.

The same source noted that the discussion tackled as well the situation in Lebanon.

The talks were held in Fayyad's office at the parliament.

More than 270 people have been killed so far in 11 days of Israeli violence on the Gaza Strip.

The war has affected security in southern Lebanon in the past days as several rocket attacks were fired from a region near the city of Tyre towards northern Israel.

Three men were arrested in the light of these events, one of them turned out to be affiliated with the Jamaa Islamiyya, while the two others were identified as Palestinian nationals.

Accordingly, the Lebanese army has ruled out Hizbullah involvement in the firing of rockets.
