Geagea: Some Security Authorities Still Consider Syrian Intelligence as Their Friendإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea slammed on Thursday the assassination attempt against MP Butros Harb, questioning how the security forces have so far failed in uncovering any lead in any of the assassinations against March 14 officials.
He said: “Some security agencies only protect the LF and Mustaqbal Movement, while others still consider Syrian intelligence as their friend.”
He made his remarks after holding talks with deputy Speaker Farid Makari and LF MP Antoine Zahra.
“The March 14 camp is constantly being targeted. Parliament does not move a muscle to tackle the case of Harb, who has served as a lawmaker for 40 years, while uproar is created over lesser affairs,” noted Geagea.
“Can someone tell me why assassinations have only targeted March 14 figures?” he asked.
“That is because they are the only powers working for achieving a strong, free, and independent Lebanon,” he declared.
“Harb was the target today and the rest of the camp is also a target. Who has the freedom of mobility to perform such actions?” he wondered.
“How are Israeli spy networks uncovered, but none of the leads in the assassination attempts?” he continued.
Furthermore, he questioned “the other camp’s failure to condemn the assassination attempt,” noting that it tries “through all means possible to constantly belittle these developments.”
“How long will this situation persist? Do they want us to take to the streets and burn tires? We won’t do so because this is not part of our culture,” Geagea stressed.
“We will instead prepare for the 2013 parliamentary elections against all who do not assume their responsibilities in state in order to end the current poor security, economic, and social situation,” declared the LF chief.
