BEIRUT: Former Prime Minister Fouad Siniora slammed Thursday Hezbollah’s growing involvement in the conflict in neighboring Syria, saying the group was violating all norms.
“What Hezbollah is doing is very dangerous and undermines all national principles and contradicts the Constitution, [national] laws, the Baabda Declaration, international agreements and the policy of disassociation adopted by Lebanon,” Siniora said in a statement.
“Taking part in the fighting in Syria could lead Lebanon into dangerous confrontations... against the country’s interests,” he added.
Hezbollah’s growing involvement in the Syria crisis has been condemned by Lebanon’s opposition, the Marc 14 coalition.
According to the statement, Siniora, who heads the Future parliamentary bloc, also contacted a number of Shiite figures and urged them to exert efforts to help prevent Hezbollah getting further involved in the conflict next door.
