Kanaan condemns Israeli attack on Qoneitra

JANUARY 20, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) The secretary of the parliamentary bloc Change and Reform, Ibrahim Kanaan, condemned Tuesday the Israeli aggression against Qoneitra, which left behind several martyrs.

He noted that the attack was an attempt to undermine the stability and the ongoing negotiations between the parties to the conflict in the region.

Speaking on behalf of the parliamentary bloc after its weekly meeting in Rabieh, Kanaan urged security forces not to be lenient with regard to security incidents throughout the country.

Moreover, the MP reiterated the need to initiate reforms, particularly in the financial field and the treasury, and control the waste and the corruption in state institutions.

In his words, these reforms can only take place by the finalization of the budget within the constitutional deadlines.

Concerning dialogue between the Lebanese parties, Kanaan welcomed the efforts made in this direction, hoping they would lead to meeting all of Lebanon’s constitutional deadlines.
