In a local ceremony in south Lebanon on Sunday, MP Raad described Lebanese Forces militia’s ambush in Tayouneh last Thursday (October 14), especially the sniper fire, as a “treachery that won’t go unanswered”
“The Lebanese Forces’ treachery which has committed a massacre on Thursday has its own account that will be settled. However, we won’t be dragged into a civil war. We won’t accept that this blood would go in vain. The Lebanese state must stage a probe and hold those who are responsible accountable.”
The lawmaker stressed that the “blood of our martyrs won’t go in vain.”
“Their blood is not an ink. We know the value of this blood very well. If it had not been for this blood, the Lebanese people would have not been dignified, and the Israeli occupation would have ruled this country.”
The lawmaker said Hezbollah has been for long months, keen for national peace and exerting efforts to guard the country against any form of civil war.
MP Raad lashed out the Lebanese Forces militia without mentioning them.
“Their historical record is full of massacres that threatens the national security. They are racist who take the side of the Zionists. They are the foreigners’ mercenaries.”
