Hannawi: Shebaa’s operation reaction to Quneitra attack

JANUARY 30, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Sports and Youth Minister, Abdel Moutalib Hannawi, said on Friday that “Shebaa’s latest attack was a reaction to Quneitra aggression,” stressing that it happened in a region that is not related to resolution 1701 and within a Lebanese occupied territory.

The minister said that Prime Minister Tammam Salam, in yesterday’s Cabinet session (Thursday), spoke on behalf of the Cabinet and condemned the Israeli retaliation which violated the Blue Line.

Regarding the increase in ISF members, he told the “Voice of Lebanon” radio that “this issue is not an introduction to any sort of increase to the members of other apparatuses.”
