Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat reiterated on Thursday that his party backs the Syrian revolution against the terrorist regime of President Bashar Assad after receiving threats from a Jordanian writer.
“The PSP holds onto its stable stance in support of the Syrian revolution against the regime of terror, murder and threat against the Syrian people,” Jumblat said in a statement, which he issued a day after al-Akhbar newspaper said the writer had threatened the lawmaker.
The unnamed journalist had reportedly said the mainly Druze city of al-Swaida, which is located in southwestern Syria close to the Jordanian border, “would be safeguarded politically and militarily by breaking Walid Jumblat, the central connection in the plot.”
The PSP chief described the writer as one of the mouthpieces of the terrorist regime in Syria, which he said is taking the country towards destruction.
Jumblat stated that his party has not interfered in Syria's war and was keen on having a comprehensive confrontation by the people against the regime to protect the country's unity.
He said he reserved the right to take legal action against the writer “through Lebanon's state institutions that were and will remain our only choice.”
Jumblat also urged Lebanon's different political factions “to reject all sorts of instigation and accusations which Lebanon has played a high price for.”
