Hashem calls for providing political cover to army in battle against terrorist gangs

OCTOBER 26, 2014 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Member of Development and Liberation parliamentary bloc, Qassem Hashem, urged on Sunday for providing political cover to the Lebanese army in its fight against terrorist gangs.

During a meeting with the dignitaries of the region of Aarkoub, the MP criticized the logic of compromise that prevailed in the past against terrorist groups. In his words, it is time to provide political cover to the Lebanese army and security forces to eliminate terrorist gangs that threaten national security.

Hashem concluded that the events of recent days have shown that some tendentious political speeches were more dangerous than armed terrorists.
