BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – Israel is attempting to create a new Sheba’a Farms–like scenario in the eastern Mediterranean, Speaker of the House, Nabih Berri, said on Friday.
The veteran politician and leader of the Amal Movement stressed stressed that the resistance constituted a deterrent force and was an auxiliary factor in the political battle that Lebanon was waging on the axis of establishing sovereign land and sea borders.
“Israel wants to create new Shebaa Farms, but this time at sea. For the last five years, Lebanon has been engaged in tough negotiations and the Lebanese position remains the same. Political battles are no less dangerous than military ones with the enemy,” the House Speaker explained.
In regards to Syria, Berri said that the government in Damascus is still in strong support of the resistance in Syria, despite years of war.
“The biggest threat to Palestine is the disintegration of Arabs,” Berri said, adding that Syria has been and remains a strong support for the resistance.
Berri’s fresh stance came during his meeting with a delegation of the Arab Organization of Young Lawyers, who are currently participating in the Arab Oil and Gas Conference in Beirut, under his auspices.
