Initial reactions by political leaders to Hezbollah's deadly attack on an Israeli military convoy in an occupied region of south Lebanon Wednesday drew a mix of praise, blame and fear of escalation.A Foreign Ministry statement said Lebanon remained commited to U.N. Resolution 1701, arguing that Hezbollah's attack did not amount to a violation of the 2006 deal since it targeted an Israeli military convoy inside the Shebaa Farms, which is occupied Lebanese territory. Future Movement MP Samir Jisr said that the Hezbollah attack would not affect ongoing dialogue between his group and the party.Lebanese Forces chief Samir Geagea of the March 14 coalition which is opposed to Hezbollah, held the party solely responsible for any potential Israeli response, and for drawing Lebanon into a battle with Israel without the consent of its people and government.
