Abu Faour lashes out at Syrian ambassador
A+ A-

BEIRUT: Caretaker Social Affairs Minister Wael Abu Faour launched a scathing attack against President Bashar Assad’s regime over the weekend in response to the Syrian ambassador’s criticism of MP Walid Jumblatt, saying the regime faced inevitable collapse.

“Of course, we were not surprised with the resilience of the [Syrian] regime or with their vast hatred against the Syrian people and the magnitude of the crimes led by its leadership and officers,” Abu Faour said in a statement in response to Syrian Ambassador to Lebanon Ali Abdel-Karim Ali.

“And we will not be surprised with the regime’s inevitable collapse in the coming days with all its political, security, military and diplomatic ranks, who sooner or later will get what they deserve in order for justice and fairness to be achieved for the suffering of the Syrian people,” Abu Faour, a member of Jumblatt’s parliamentary bloc, said.

The Syrian envoy slammed Jumblatt earlier this week, saying there were no ties between the head of the Progressive Socialist Party and President Bashar Assad.
