Geagea: A Number of Strategic Errors Led Lebanon to Current Situation


Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea lamented on Monday the current situation in Lebanon, criticizing how some major files are being tackled.

He said via Twitter: “A number of strategic errors have led Lebanon to this current state.”

These errors include “the existence of a statelet outside of the authority of the state,” he added in reference to Hizbullah.

Geagea also blamed the fighting of some Lebanese groups in Syria alongside the country’s regime for the poor situation in Lebanon.

The LF leader listed the failure to control the border in accordance to United Nations Security Council resolution 1701 and the manner in which the case of abducted soldiers and policemen as other issues that led to the deterioration of the situation in the country.

The army battled in August Islamist militants in the northeastern town of Arsal, which ended with the gunmen abducting a number of soldiers and policemen.

The captives are still being held by the militants, but three have since been executed.

The battle was seen as a repercussion of the spread of the Syrian conflict to Lebanon.

Some March 14 alliance officials have blamed Hizbullah’s fighting in Syria for the spillover of the war to Lebanon.
