Geagea on Nakba Day Clashes: They’re Mistaken if They Believe that that is the Way to Reclaim Palestine

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea criticized on Tuesday the Nakba Day clashes that erupted on Sunday, noting the sparse military presence at Maroun al-Ras.

He said: “The army and security forces deployed heavily along the entire border, but there were only four or five soldiers at Maroun al-Ras.”

Such developments are unacceptable, he added.

“They are gravely mistaken if they believe that this is the way to reclaim Palestine,” he stated.

Addressing the government formation process, Geagea said: “The other camp does not have a constructive agenda, but only a plan to assume power and constantly attack us.”

“Appointing a prime minister who does not enjoy the support of all sides is a crime against the nation,” he stressed.

The only way to solve the current crisis lies in forming a technocratic government, the LF leader concluded.
