BEIRUT: The recent car bombing in a Beirut suburb was a product of Hezbollah's intervention in the Syrian conflict, the March 14 coalition said Wednesday in a statement condemning the "terrorist act."

“The [March 14] Secretariat General denounced this terrorist act which harmed a residential neighborhood and left a number of people hurt or wounded,” the coalition said in a statement following its weekly meeting.

“The Secretariat General has for months warned of the consequences of Hezbollah’s intervention in the Syrian crisis, which will reach everyone, without exception,” the statement said.

Hezbollah’s intervention has triggered crises across Lebanon and could be a step towards Lebanon’s destruction, according to the alliance’s statement.

Hezbollah has become deeply involved in the Syrian conflict, strongly supporting President Bashar Assad's army in its campaign against rebels controlling parts of the country.

At least 50 people were wounded Tuesday when a car bomb exploded in the parking lot in the pro-Hezbollah neighborhood of Bir al-Abed.

March 14 stressed that the solution to the problem will come from supporting the state and its institutions and said Lebanon’s stability cannot be achieved without disarmament.

“Peace in Lebanon requires the handover of all illegitimate weapons to the State pursuant to the Taif Agreement and [U.N. Security Council] resolution 1559,” the statement said.
