BEIRUT: United Nations Special Coordinator for Lebanon, Derek Plumbly, condemned Thursday the car bombing in Lebanon’s Hermel that killed four people and wounded scores and urged restraint, a statement from his office said.
Plumbly extended his condolences to the families of the victims of the bombing and said he continued “to be disturbed by the recurrence of indiscriminate acts of violence in Lebanon during the past months.”
The U.N. official also urged all the Lebanese to exercise restraint whilst being “aware of the pain and anger generated by such violence.”
“Support of state institutions, including the Army and the security forces, is the best way to safeguard the country’s security and stability,” Plumbly said.
He also hoped those responsible for today’s bombing and all other acts of terrorism would be brought to justice as soon as possible.
