Hout condemns attacks against civilians

FEBRUARY 2, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Jamaa Islamiya MP Imad Hout said in an interview with Al-Fajr radio that the bombing which targeted a bus carrying Lebanese people in Damascus is highly rejected, “even if it came under the title of reaction to the terrorist acts by the regime and its allies against civilians in Syria.”

“The regime’s crimes must not be faced by counter-attacks deemed unacceptable in religious or humanitarian standards,” he assured.

On a different note, Hout said it is the duty of the Lebanese government to have a clear position on major decisions in the country, such as war and peace.

Pertaining to the French movement to preserve the Security Council Resolution 1701, Hout said “the breaches of this decision on a daily basis, by air and sea, are being conducted by the Zionist enemy, and therefore the efforts must be exerted against those violations.

The Resolution 1701 is actually not in real danger as the Zionist enemy is unable to handle a comprehensive confrontation on the verge of elections and it could not risk a new failure as happened in 2006 in Lebanon and in 2012 and 2014 in Gaza.”

“The same applies to Hezbollah, which exhausted its capabilities by its involvement in the fighting alongside the regime in Syria,” he went on.
