Raad: As we fight in Syria, we defend ourselves

November 08, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) As we fight in Syria, we defend ourselves and our own project, head of the Hizbullah parliamentarian Bloc deputy Muhammad Raad, stated upon the passing of week 1 at the slaying of a party member today.

Addressing a group of party loyalists and clerics at Kafra Huseiniyya mosque/ south Lebanon, Raad added that by fighting ISIL/NUSRA, we consolidate our own brand of peace while working to elect a new president the sooner the better. Seeking a disputed presidential figure implies in no way further grounding of state institutions, for they belong to the whole people, he said. We anticipate constitutional promulgation serving party’s interests and achievements, he went on.

Unlike the Israelis, whom we’d managed to cage inside an equation of deterrence, ISIL/NOSRA remain unpredictable and should be guarded against as attested by the presently reigning chaos in Arsal, Raad said. Frankly speaking, we distrust Geneva negotiators who continue to deploy ISIL against us but, as we repelled them from Lebanon, we shall do the same in Syria inshallah, Raad concluded.
