Yesterday, the funeral of the martyrs of the shooting incident was held in Beirut. “We cannot remain silent in the face of the bloodshed and we know how to reclaim our rights,” said Seyyed Hashem Safi al-Din, Hezbollah’s deputy chief executive.
He said: “The responsibility for yesterday’s incident lies entirely with the “Lebanese Forces” party (Samir Geagea). The one who targets the unarmed is a coward. We are not looking for civil and religious war, but we will not spare the blood of our martyrs.”
