BEIRUT: Hezbollah MP Mohammad Raad warned over the weekend the establishment of a fail accompli government would only serve to fuel strife in Lebanon.
“Establishing a fait accompli government would only mean pouring oil on fire and an implementation of a decision to fuel strife and explode the country," the head of the Loyalty to the Resistance parliamentary bloc told Hezbollah supporters in the southern town of Kfarsir Sunday.
Addressing political leaders, he said: “You have to understand what we say ... because we have a sufficient amount of experience.
He also warned of a further deterioration of security in the country.
“Signs of an escalation are clear," he said. "The enemies of this nation and the enemies of Muslims and the agents of the oppressors have made a pricing decision on fire in this country," Raad said.
He called on Lebanese “to work together to extinguish the fire ... so as to prevent it from raging.”
Without naming them, Raad accused the U.S. and Israel of using Takfiris to destroy Hezbollah.
“These arrogant [powers] want to topple the resistance [Hezbollah] and those who believe in its [path],” he said.
He said the only motive behind a recent car bombing in the Ruwaiss area of the Beirut southern suburb that killed at least 30 people “was because those people believe in the resistance.”
