The Future parliamentary bloc said Wednesday life in Lebanon will only return to normal when Hezbollah withdraws from Syria, demanding the inclusion of the Baabda Declaration in the ministerial statement of the upcoming Cabinet.The bloc has blamed Hezbollah's intervention in Syria for the series of car bomb attacks in Beirut's southern suburbs and last week's bombing in the northeastern town of Hermel, saying the attacks are the result of the group's military involvement alongside the Damascus regime.Most of the car bombs in Beirut's southern suburbs, where Hezbollah enjoys broad support, have been claimed by radical rebel groups in Syria in retaliation to the resistance party's presence there.The bloc also commented on the ongoing process of forming a new government that has recently seen a breakthrough in the 10-month political deadlock, reiterating their refusal to include Hezbollah's defense formula in the upcoming ministerial statement.
