BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 A.M.) – The leader of the so-called Lebanese Forces Party, Samir Geagea, stated over the weekend that he supports any investigation probing the Hezbollah-Islamic State (Da’esh) agreement that ended the Da’esh presence in the Qalamoun Mountains of Lebanon and Syria.
“We support any probe but the investigation should also target those who exerted efforts to allow IS militants to escape and be spared prosecution,” the disgraced Lebanese politician stated in reference to Hezbollah, as quoted by Naharnet.
“Some parties were dismayed that the army was about to achieve a complete victory, so they sought to deprive it and deprive the Lebanese of the fruits of this victory,” Geagea said.
“Before some parties try to sign agreements with Bashar al-Assad’s regime, let them return our captives and those who went missing in Syrian prisons, topped by Butros Khawand,” Geagea continued.
“Let the Brotherhood, Cooperation and Coordination Treaty which was approved under Syrian occupation of Lebanon be annulled, let the unconstitutional Higher Lebanese-Syrian Council be abolished, and let those convicted in the case of the blasts that targeted al-Taqwa and al-Salam mosques be handed over, topped by Ali al-Mamlouk,” he concluded.
