Lebanon must not be destroyed because one political party wants to appoint someone to an official position, an Amal Movement MP said Sunday, amid soaring tensions between the group and its ally, the Free Patriotic Movement."This is threatening Lebanon as an entity and a state".His comments come amidst rising tensions between the different political parties represented in the national unity Cabinet, where FPM-affiliated ministers have vowed to prevent any decision to be approved before the appointment of successors to the country's top security posts.
