Geagea Urges Hizbullah's Withdrawal from Regional Conflicts as Solution for Hariri's 'Crisis'

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea said on Saturday that “if the March 8 alliance truly” wants PM Saad Hariri's return they would “withdraw from the crises in the region.”

“To all those of March 8 group shedding tears over Hariri's absence...If you truly want his return to Lebanon it only requires a single decision of withdrawing from the crises in the region,” said Geagea in a tweet.

Geagea's tweet came in reference to Hizbullah's involvement, without naming the party, in the crisis in Syria and other Arab countries as a power struggle intensified between Saudi Arabia and Iran, which backs Lebanon's Hizbullah.

A political crisis has gripped Lebanon and shattered the relative peace maintained by its coalition government since Hariri's stunning announcement on Nov. 4 from Riyadh that he was resigning.

Lebanese officials have insisted on the return home of Hariri from Saudi Arabia amid rumors he is being held against his will.
