BEIRUT: The Future bloc condemned the latest explosions in Dahr al-Baidar and Tayyouneh during its weekly meeting Wednesday, blaming Hezbollah’s involvement in Syria for Lebanon’s security problems.

“The latest attacks on Dahr al-Baidar and Tayyouneh reveal the absence of any sympathy toward the perpetrator,” The Future bloc said, adding that “the Lebanese refuse to drift in to terrorism, and are holding on to civil peace and national unity.”

The party laid responsibility for these incidents at Hezbollah’s feet.

“The continuity of Hezbollah’s involvement in the battle for Syria is behind Lebanon’s terrorism problem,” it said. “Hezbollah has immersed itself in the region’s problems and is requested to withdraw from Syria before tomorrow.”

The Future bloc condemned the Syrian regime and Hezbollah's control of the Lebanese border town of Tfail after clashes between Hezbollah-backed regime troops and rebel forces erupted near the border last week.

Residents of Tfail have been fleeing the fallout of clashes, making their way toward the northeastern Lebanese town of Arsal.

“Tfail is subject to the sovereignty of the Lebanese state and the control of Lebanese security.” It said, urging the government to act to allow the Lebanese Army and security institutions to protect the people and ensure their safe return to their homes.

The party condemned the deterioration of the situation in Iraq, saying “the proper way out of this, in the face of terrorism and salvation from tyranny, is through the formation of a government of true national unity that includes all parties and sects.”
