BEIRUT: Future MP Mohammad Kabbara said Monday that recent clashes in Arsal comprised a bigger conspiracy targeting Lebanon, stressing that Tripoli supports the state and its institutions.
“Lebanon is experiencing the most dangerous existential crisis since the independence of 1943,” Kabbara said in a statement.
He said what happened in Arsal is “nothing but one element of the continuous conspiracy aiming at permanently overthrowing the Lebanese state... and creating another state, different from the one we want and insist on.”
Kabbara stressed that Tripoli’s decision is “the Lebanese state and its legitimate institutions,” saying this was the reason for the “random war against us to distort our positions and accuse us of standing against the state.”
The Tripoli MP also expressed hope that the abducted security soldiers are released as soon as possible, praising “everyone who is putting an effort into this direction.”
