Afeish: Granting Palestinians rights are veiled attempts to their naturalization


Lebanon’s State Minister Mona Afeish told Future News on Saturday: Granting Palestinian refugees right of ownership and social security are veiled attempts to their naturalization.

She was referring to the bill proposed by Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt in the parliament last week that will grant Palestinians civil rights and will allow them to own property in Lebanon , a move that stirred controversy in the parliament.

Hezbollah and Amal MPs voted for the bill but the Christian MPs including the Phalange, the Lebanese Forces and the Free Patriotic Movement voted against.
