The Phalange Party praised on Monday the discovery of a ‘takfiri’ cell in the Lebanese army, which was seeking to carry out attacks against the army.
It said in a statement after its weekly politburo meeting: “We condemn attempts to harm the military institution because it represents national unity and the country’s sovereignty.”
The army intelligence last week discovered the ‘takfiri’ network and it has been revealed that its leader is residing in the Ain el-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp although his exact whereabouts are unknown.
Addressing the spoiled food scandal in Lebanon, the Phalange Party said that the crisis has harmed Lebanon’s reputation, saying that the issue needed to be tackled “seriously and responsibly.”
“Systems that respect themselves would witness the resignation of sides responsible for the crisis out of respect for the people whose lives are being placed in danger,” it remarked.
Regarding the seventh anniversary of the March 14 movement that was marked on Wednesday, the statement pledged that it would continue the mission to achieve Lebanon’s sovereign goals, calling on all sides to commit to the establishment of a civil state.
