BEIRUT: U.N. Special Coordinator for Lebanon Derek Plumbly and Hezbollah official Ammar Moussawi both reiterated during talks Monday their condemnation of “terrorist bombings” in Lebanon.

According to a statement from Hezbollah, Plumbly and the head of the party’s International Relations Department denounced bombings targeting Lebanon, particularly the suicide car bombing over the weekend in the northeastern city of Hermel.

They also rejected any justifications for the attacks.

The Hermel blast that killed four people, including the bomber, and wounded 23 others is the latest among a series of deadly bombings targeting areas in which Hezbollah enjoys wide support.

The two officials also discussed the need to support security agencies in Lebanon, mainly the Army.

They called for national support for the Army and trusting the role of the military establishment.

The two also discussed the latest efforts and developments in the formation of the next government.
