Bassil says Hezbollah, Lebanon won't achieve anything by supporting Gaza

Free Patriotic Movement chief Jebran Bassil has noted that “it’s not Hezbollah that will decide the end of the war in Lebanon and the south, but rather Israel and Hamas, which are negotiating.”

“Hezbollah considers that it is achieving something by assisting Gaza, but we do not agree to this,” Bassil added, in an interview on RT Arabic.

“Lebanon will not achieve objectives from this war in terms of recovering Lebanese rights. It is rather paying its price every day in destruction and ruin,” Bassil lamented.

He added that a delineation of the land border between Lebanon and Israel would not be an “achievement,” seeing as “it could have been achieved diplomatically without resorting to war.”

Noting that “Israel will be defeated should it launch an attack on Lebanon,” Bassil added that the FPM’s stance “on participation in the liberation of Jerusalem should not bother Hezbollah in particular,” seeing as Lebanon’s “responsibility in liberating Jerusalem was not mentioned in the (2006) memorandum of understanding.”
