Loyalty to the Resistance bloc called upon political forces in Lebanon at this critical stage to act responsibly vis-à-vis the terrorist threat, especially after the developments in Lebanon and the region confirmed that this terrorism is identical to the Zionist terrorism in his crimes, methods and targets.

loyalty blocThe bloc hailed the arrest of terrorist Ahmad Al-Assir who was responsible of Abra and Sidon tragic events that lead to the killing and injuring of dozens of Lebanese army soldiers and officers along with other Lebanese civilians, not to mention his responsibility in operating terrorist cells to sow discord and provoke incitement and division. “This is an important security achievement that deserves our deep appreciation which we extend to the army institution,” the bloc said after its weekly meeting.

The bloc hoped that justice would take its course in the case and that his accomplices from funders to inciters and even those who provided cover-up will be detained.

Concerning the Mustaqbal-FPM dialogue, the bloc said in a statement read by MP Hassan Fadlallah: “We renew our call for the Mustaqbal Party to stop evading holding communication and dialogue with the Free Patriotic Movement, which can neither be ousted or isolated nor ignored especially in terms of achieving national partnership which is the basis of the state and its institutions.”

It declared that the Mustaqbal Movement's stance is delaying resolving pending political disputes and creating new problems in Lebanon, such as the waste disposal crisis and the dispute over the wages of public sector employees.

“The deliberate isolation directed against the FPM by rival parties will backfire against them,” the bloc added.
