BEIRUT: A Hezbollah MP blamed Wednesday Lebanon’s self-disassociation policy from the Syrian crisis for the infiltration of Takfiris into the country to implement their plot in the region.

“The disassociation policy adopted by the Lebanese government paved the way for the radical Takfiri forces that have infiltrated Lebanon to serve the plot of dividing the region, which began in Iraq then Syria and now arrived to Lebanon,” Baalbek-Hermel MP Walid Sukkarieh from Hezbollah's Loyalty to Resistance parliamentary bloc told the Sawt al-Shaeb radio station.

Sukkariyeh also lamented the absence of a political cover for the Lebanese Army to allow them to eliminate these Takfiri groups from Lebanon.

“The other [political rival] accepts that these [Takfiri] groups attack the resistance but refuse they attack the military; they also appeal for their release once detained like what happened in Abra,” he said, in reference to the fatal June clashes between Salafi-labeled Sheikh Ahmad al-Assir’s fighters and the Army in the Sidon suburb of Abra.

Hezbollah has accused the Future Movement of defending Assir’s loyalists in Abra.
