Hezbollah called for a just probe into the Beirut Port blast on the second anniversary of the tragic explosion which killed more than 200, injured thousands others and devastated large neighborhoods of the Lebanese capital.
In a statement issued on Thursday, Hezbollah’s Media Relations Office said “Lebanon and its people are still suffering from the national tragedy which hit the country’s heart.”
“We, in Hezbollah, renew our deep condolences to the families of all martyrs, despite their sects and nationalities, as we assure our sincere sympathy with those who were injured and those whose properties were damaged.”
The Lebanese Resistance party noted that “during the last two years the country witnessed huge political and media campaigns that included baseless accusations and unprecedented instigation that led to local tensions which put Lebanon on the brink of dangerous instability, especially regarding the bloody incident in Tayyouneh.”
Hezbollah highlighted in this context his keenness to avoid sedition during and after Tayyouneh clashes last October.
“Today, we reiterate our firm and known stance towards this issue, as we call for a just and transparent investigation according to legal basics and away from politicization, double standards, and sectarian instigation.”
“We believe that justice alone can calm the souls and consolidate stability in the country as it leads to dialogue and joint efforts in a bid to cope with the dangerous crisis Lebanon has been witnessing.”
