Speaker Nabih Berri and MP Walid Jumblatt said Monday that the anti-ISIS coalition did not seriously aim at eradicating the extremist group, highlighting that the Arab region was being fragmented to serve the interests of Israel. Berri said the U.S.-led military campaign against ISIS in Iraq and Syria has not changed the battle on the ground in both countries. The speaker was referring to the 1916 agreement between Britain and France, which split the Ottomans' Middle Eastern Empire between them and led to the emergence of modern Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Palestine with their current borders.For his part, Jumblatt described the anti-ISIS coalition as a "lie".
