Lebanese journalist Maria Maalouf who received death threats after she asked on social media why Israel has not eliminated Hassan Nasrallah has filed a lawsuit against the Hezbollah chief . “How can it be that a criminal who forced us into a war with Israel hasn’t been punished?” she said.
Maalouf is a news anchor and journalist who is well-known for her anti-Hezbollah statements. She also speaks out against the Syrian regime and Iran. In the aforementioned tweet, she wrote: “If Israel considers Nasrallah its enemy, why hasn’t it carried out an airstrike that would rid us of him, thus gaining our support and defending itself?”
Maalouf said that aside from the death threats, she received a lot of support from people who also oppose Hezbollah, Iran and the Syrian regime.
In an interview with Al Arabiya news organization , she explained why she strongly opposes Hezbollah and its leader and why she wrote the tweet. She claimed that she wrote the tweet as a patriotic citizen of Lebanon and not as a supporter of Israel, as her critics claim. “How can it be that a criminal who forced us into a war with Israel hasn’t been punished?” she said.
Maalouf also listed in the lawsuit “any person who appears to be an active, interfering, partner or instigator” who helped Hezbollah in “incitement and participation of murder and committing acts of kidnapping, torture, rape, displacement, committing war crimes, crimes of genocide and crimes against humanity in Syria, Yemen, Bahrain and Iraq”.
