Charbel: Security situation in Lebanon is excellent

Lebanon’s Interior Minister Marwan Charbel told Voice of Lebanon radio on Wednesday that the current security situation in the country “is excellent” noting that the ministry has “a comprehensive plan” to safeguard Lebanon.

Charbel added that Lebanese political factions “are aware of the dangers posed against Lebanon ” adding that they are “making persistent efforts” to shield the county from any deterioration “in light of the critical situation” in the region.

“ Lebanon’s security forces are extremely keen to impose security and stability in an attempt to prevent any violations that might harm the citizen and [destabilize the country].”

His comments about the security in Lebanon come after embassies and diplomats have hinted that the wave of assassinations and bombings will return to Lebanon, fearing that the turmoil in the region will affect Lebanon, according to report by Nahar newspaper on Wednesday.

An Nahar quoted an official as saying that the assassinations and bombings rumors are not based on reliable information but on hints from embassies and diplomats.

He stressed to the daily that the statements made by Interior Minister Marwan Charbel in Paris were taken out of their context.

Charbel attended in October a security exhibition in Paris where he warned against a new wave of political assassinations in Lebanon due to information obtained by his ministry.

He said that the turmoil in the neighboring countries could spread to Lebanon.

    Oh yes … sure … excellent security.
    A friend of mine found a perhaps 3-yr old boy in bad shape, skinny, in a very poopy pair of pants and no diaper, sitting in front of her apartment crying for ‘Mama’. When she phoned the police about this, they told her they could do nothing. It was a ‘holiday’ named ‘Eid al-Adha’. I guess they don’t work on holidays …
    When a baby has no security …..

    Later update … friend could not leave baby 🙁 … still trying to find someone to take him …

    Yes security situation in Lebanon is so excellent other than daily kidnapping of syrian activists and syrian soldiers shooting at Lebanese and Syrians. Hezbollah intimidates people on daily basis and setup communications networks in our own backyards to spy on us. Lebanese army attacks LF because they were doing fireworks but when Amal and HA supporters shoot in the air after their dumb ass leaders make speeches nothing is done. Even after someone dies and if someone was arrested from HA side, then he’s let out the backdoor. Yes cars gets stolen on regular basis and owners have to buy back their cars. Rumieh prison is full of riots on regular basis. Nobody is protected unless you belong to Hezbollah or Amal. yes security is so Excellent i couldn’t agree more Mr Minister..

    What security he is talking about? I guess he is not aware of what it is going on in Lebanon or he is a syrian agent. Kidnapping the innocent syrians from Lebanon, The running dogs, supporters of the mad dog of syria running free with their  machine guns  in Beirut, The behaviour of those working at  the syrian embassy in Beirut  including that stupid embassdor,  the border crossing of bachar’s terrorists to lebanon and killing innocent people. Who is safe in Lebanon? Let Him read what Junblat said Yesterday about security in Lebanon
