BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 A.M.) – The leader of the Lebanese Democratic Party Talal Arslan blasted his political rival Walid Jumblatt on Sunday over the death of a Tawhid Party supporter in the Chouf District town of Jahlieh.
In a series of angry tweets, Minister Arslan criticized the parties responsible for sending the Lebanese Internal Security Forces (ISF) to Jahlieh, which later led to the death of Mohammad Bou Diab in Jahlieh.
“I congratulate the Intelligence Branch on this shameful bravado that took place yesterday in Jahliyeh and I congratulate the person who issued the absurd order. What a pitiful and disgusting farce,” Arslan tweeted on Sunday.
The Lebanese Democratic Party leader then shifted his attention to his rival Jumblatt, who he snarkingly ‘congratulated’ for failing to defend Mount Lebanon.
“I also congratulate Walid Jumblatt on the violation of Mount Lebanon and its villages under the slogan of enforcing the law in a selective manner,” Arslan said.
“Our families and honor in Mount Lebanon cannot be violated by anyone and the state must shoulder its responsibilities,” Arslan told Al-Mayadeen TV.
“If Walid Jumblatt is the protector of Mount Lebanon, then we can only mourn Mount Lebanon’s security,” he added.
