Kataeb: 'Hizbullah Communications Grid' in Rmeileh Poses Security Risk
The Kataeb Party on Monday warned that a reported military communications grid in the coastal town of Rmeileh near Sidon poses a “security risk to residents.”
“The installation of a Hizbullah communications grid in the town of Rmeileh is a blatant attack on the state's sovereignty and it poses a security risk to residents,” Kataeb said in a statement issued after the weekly meeting of its political bureau.
“The Kataeb Party is worriedly following up on reports coming from some of the area's figures about a cover-up by some ministries for these suspicious activities,” the party added.
Turning to the latest flare-up in Syria, Kataeb cautioned against “entangling Lebanon in the inferno of the region's conflicts and axes or turning it into a proxy war arena.”
“The Lebanese diplomacy should urgently communicate with the U.N. and the international community to confront Israeli attacks and the territorial, maritime and aerial violations of sovereignty, and to confirm the separation of the Lebanese and Syrian tracks,” the party added.
It also urged the state to “regain the initiative and preserve the country's higher interest through monopolizing the decisions of war and peace and adhering to legitimate Lebanese forces to protect security inside the country and defend the border.”
