Fatah meets with Lebanese parties to discuss security

BEIRUT: Fatah Movement officials in Lebanon held separate meetings Monday with officials from different political parties to discuss the developments in the country and the situation of Palestinian and Syrian refugees.

Fatah officials met with delegations from Hezbollah, the Future Movement and the Progressive Socialist Party.

A statement from Fatah said that during the meetings, officials from the movement’s Beirut division tackled the security and political situation in the country.

Also discussed were the “wise” efforts made by officials to prevent civil strife in the country, following two separate attacks that targeted four sheikhs in Beirut and its southern suburbs last month.

Attendees also discussed ways to provide relief to Syrian and Palestinian refugees and hasten the reconstruction efforts of Nahr alBared, a Palestinian refugee camp.

Speaking after meeting the delegation from Hezbollah, Fathi Abu al-Ardat, the secretary-general of the Palestine Liberation Organization in Lebanon, said: “Palestinians have no political ambitions or security plots in Lebanon, their only project is to return to Palestine and establish their state there.”
