Syria: Hezbollah-Al-Ahbash clash violates Lebanon’s stability


Al-Hayat newspaper reported Monday that Syria said that the Bourj Abi Haidar clash was a violation of Lebanon’s stability.

This comes after the deadly 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.

The two parties enjoy warm ties with Damascus.

Al-Hayat said that Syria does not intend to take sides, adding Damascus advised both parties to cooperate with each other to maintain a calm atmosphere.
