Kataeb leader Samy Gemayel on Sunday asked for answers regarding the Beirut port blast, saying that no one is above accountability. “Everyone who was involved in the explosion should be held accountable and summoned to the Judiciary, including Hezbollah that should be also questioned just like any other part in the country,” Gemayel said in an interview with LBC. “We are with the international investigation, but is it available?” he asked.
Former lawmaker Fares Souaid on Friday deemed the defense of Hezbollah as a national betrayal, stressing that it is not a Lebanese party. “What happened today in Southern Lebanon and Hezbollah claiming responsibility affirms that Hezbollah is not a Lebanese party and defending it is a national betrayal,” Souaid tweeted.
