Hezbollah MP: Only resistance weapons needed in Beirut


Hezbollah MP Ali Fayyad said: Any weapon that is not resistance weapon is not needed in Beirut or any other district.

This comes after the clash that took place last Tuesday night in the Beirut neighborhood of Borj Abi Haidar between supporters of the pro-Syrian Association of Islamic Charitable Projects—also known as Al-Ahbash—and the Iranian backed Hezbollah militants , leading to the death of three people, including Hezbollah official Mohammad Fawwaz, his body guard and an Al-Ahbash member who is the son of a Beirut Mukhtar.

Future (al Mustaqbal) parliamentary bloc on Thursday condemned the bloody clashes in Borj Abi Haidar following its weekly meeting at Qoreitem under former PM Fouad Siniora.and asked: What are Hezbollah weapons doing in Beirut?

“What happened in Borj Abi Haidar two days ago is unacceptable and cannot be accepted under any pretext or justification or explanation,” the bloc said in a statement.
