The brigade held an organized parade in the presence of the party's head Wiam Wahhab, who found himself in a fresh spat with Progressive Socialist Party leader and rival Walid Jumblatt.The Tawhid Party is a March 8 affiliate group and on multiple occasions Wahhab has expressed his support for Hezbollah and the party's involvement in the Syrian war along the Syrian President Bashar Assad.During his speech, Wahhab touched on the current political situation and reiterated his criticism for Druze leaders, primarily Jumblatt, blaming them for the marginalization of the Druze sect in the political scene.Wahhab added that the sidelining of the Druze had been ongoing since the Taif Accord, which ended Lebanon's 1975-1990 Civil War.Wahhab's comments drew a swift rebuke from Jumblatt, who responded via Twitter describing Wahhab's comments as baseless.
