إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Prime Minister Tammam Salam made a series of contacts lately in order to keep Lebanon away from the repercussions of the unrest in the Gaza Strip, reported An Nahar daily on Saturday.

It said that Salam contacted the representatives of major world powers in Beirut to that end.

He stressed that the government was not responsible for the firing of rockets from southern Lebanon towards Israel on Friday.

He also asserted that Hizbullah was not linked to the incident.

The premier stressed Lebanon's commitment to the implementation of United Nations Security Council resolution 1701 that was issued in 2006 to end Israel's 33-day war with Hizbullah that erupted in July of that year.

Israel launched a campaign against the Palestinian group Hamas in the Gaza Strip earlier this week, with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowing that it would not end until he achieved his goal of stopping the Hamas fire.

At least 100 Palestinians have so far been killed in the bombardment.

Whoever benefits from escalating a so called war that makes no sense and implicate Lebanon. The 20th of July 2014, is the deadline for the Iranian nuclear agreement. Now, with the Middle East igniting with war from Iraq to Palestine/Israel, there is no meaningful chance that it will be concluded and all the reasons that it will be postponed once again which will again buy the Iranians more time to meet their goals.

Wolf - "Israel must start and respect other countries borders"

Is that why 3 rockets were fired yesterday evening from Lebanon into Israel?
