The Loyalty to the Resistance bloc criticized on Wednesday calls for Beirut to become an arms-free city.
It said after its weekly meeting: "The unrealistic slogans about Beirut do not reflect the spirit of understanding that the government had maintained in its ministerial statement."
In addition, the bloc stated that the calls "serve to ignite chaos and provocative rhetoric between the Lebanese."
Furthermore, it condemned those criticizing the army saying that they are doing so without being aware of "the dangers of this game and their negative repercussions on the security and stability of the country."
"The army acted responsibly and firmly and managed to perform its duties in controlling the unfortunate incident and halt its repercussions," it said of the recent Borj Abi Haidar clashes.
