Berri says Israel violating all rules of engagement, Mikati says Lebanon ready to negotiate


Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri on Tuesday noted that “the daily Israeli escalation is targeting the depth of residential areas, civilians and even ambulances and journalists.”

Israel is “not only violating U.N. resolution 1701 but also all rules of engagement,” Berri added, during a meeting in Ain el-Tineh with U.N. Under-Secretary-General for Peace Operations Jean-Pierre Lacroix, who was accompanied by UNIFIL chief Aroldo Lazaro and U.N. Special Coordinator for Lebanon Joanna Wronecka.

The U.N. delegation also met with caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati, who reiterated his call for the international community to “halt the Israeli aggression” against Lebanon.

“We are advocates of permanent stability and we call for a permanent peaceful solution, but in return we are receiving warnings through international envoys about a war on Lebanon,” Mikati added.

He also reiterated “Lebanon’s readiness to engage in negotiations to achieve a long-term stability process in south Lebanon and on the northern border of occupied Palestine,” noting that Lebanon is willing to “abide by U.N. resolutions, the (1949) Armistice Agreement and Resolution 1701.”

Naharnet isn’t mentioning the new French prime minister, he’s gay (macron being bisexual) and a Jew. The previous one Elisabeth Borne was also a Jew (Bornestein being her name).

And where was Macron working before getting picked by the deep State as finance minister? Banque Rothschild.

Now we understand why he unconditionally supports the genocidal Zionists.

You write utter nonsense and lies in order to attack Jews and Zionists.
Well, here is the truth.
Gabriel Attal de Couriss was born on March 16, 1989 in Clamart (Hauts-de-Seine), a southwestern suburb of Paris. His father, Yves Attal (1948–2015), was a lawyer and film producer. The mother, Marie de Couriss (* 1964 in Paris), is also a film producer and works in the real estate business. She has noble ancestors, partly from Ukraine, partly German Baltic and on the other hand French- Angevin ancestors. She and her children were baptized Orthodox . Her grandmother was Marie von Meyendorff (1904–1978), granddaughter of the Russian Tsarist Major General Fedor von Meyendorff (1842–1911). Due to his father's Tunisian- Jewish descent, Attal says he was confronted with anti-Semitism throughout his life. He grew up in the 13th and 14th arrondissement in Paris with three younger sisters.

@Philipo, nothing you wrote disproves what I posted. What's your point? He's PACSed (civil union) with Stéphane Séjourné, a MEP. (an abomination -Leviticus 18:22)

He's the perfect Zionist candidate to party on the beaches of Tal Aviv.
