Jumblat: March 14, Hizbullah Fighting in Syria, Berri Won't Let Orthodox Law Pass

Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat on Sunday accused Hizbullah of receiving orders from Iran to send fighters to Syria.

In an interview on Al-Jazeera, Jumblat also said “the Lebanese government has failed in implementing the self-dissociation policy, which prompted March 14 parties to fight on the side of the Syrian people."

Turning to the controversial issue of the new electoral law, Jumblat said he has information that “Speaker Nabih Berri will not allow the adoption of the Orthodox Gathering draft law (in parliament), because essential components of the Lebanese people are against it.”

“Berri is keen on accord in Lebanon,” Jumblat added.
