Lebanese Member of Parliament Elias Jradeh, who once was introduced by anti-Hezbollah media as an ‘opposition’ candidate in face of Lebanese Resistance movement in south Lebanon, announced support to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to fly over the disputed maritime zone between Lebanon and the Zionist entity.
In an interview with Al-Jadeed channel on Wednesday, Jradeh said he doesn’t “only support drones, but also more drones in order to press the Lebanese government to take a clear stance in a bid to know what we are negotiating for.”
“As a Lebanese citizen, I call on the Lebanese government to clarify its stance on the maritime border indirect talks. It’s illogical to know the Lebanese position from the enemy’s remarks!”
Meanwhile, the independent lawmaker warned that “if Lebanon is prevented from gas and oil extraction from Line 23 then the enemy is also barred from doing so south of Line 29.”
“The Lebanese state has to take a clear stance and then the Army, Resistance and the People will stand by its side,” Jradeh was quoted as saying in the interview with Al-Jadeed.
Jradeh, a 55-year-old eye surgeon, was introduced as the “first opposition lawmaker” elected in south Lebanon during the parliamentary elections last May. However, the MP, who is a former prisoner by Israeli occupation forces during the eighties of the last century, has repeatedly confirmed that he supports the Resistance against the Israeli enemy.
Last Saturday, Hezbollah launched three unmanned aerial vehicles that were heading for the Karish gas field in the Mediterranean.
Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah recently threatened the Zionist entity against extracting gas from the contested offshore reserve, saying that the Lebanese Resistance movement is capable of preventing such action, including by force.
