BEIRUT: Lebanon’s Social Affairs Minister Wael Abu Faour Saturday expressed hope that Palestinians may feel some sense of comfort from the passing of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, a figure widely despised in Lebanon.

“Perhaps the souls of the martyrs from the Sabra and Shatila massacres can get a bit of comfort from the death of Sharon,” Abu Faour said, according to a statement.

“There should be no gloating in death, even when it’s of a criminal who made his life the source of death and suffering of others,” he said, adding Lebanese, Palestinians and Arabs sympathetic to the Palestinian cause would remember those who perished as a result of Sharon’s actions.

“With the passing of Sharon, there is now less evil in this world,” Abu Faour said.

Sharon died earlier Saturday aged 85 after eight years in a coma.
