Phalange: Nakba Day Incidents Should Drive World to Assume Responsibilities in Pushing for Peace

The Phalange Party condemned on Monday the ongoing political crisis in Lebanon, saying that it is “starting to kill the country.”

It said in a statement after its weekly politburo meeting: “As Arab people are demanding to topple the regimes in their countries, the Lebanese should demand that the system in their country be saved seeing that solutions to the crisis will not be reached any time soon.”

“The situation in the country is no longer acceptable as the people are left to deal with all sorts of social and economic crises,” it continued.

Addressing the Sunday’s clashes at Maroun al-Ras and the Golan Heights during the Nakba commemoration, it stressed: “The casualties should stand as a lesson to the world that they should assume their responsibilities pushing towards resuming Middle East peace negotiations.”

The Phalange Party praised the efforts of the Lebanese army and United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon to prevent an escalation in the violence, calling for the implementation of U.N. Security Council resolution 1701.
