Member of Hezbollah’s loyalty to Resistance parliamentary bloc MP Hasan Fadlallah stressed that perpetrators of Tayouneh ambush must be held accountable.
In a local ceremony in south Lebanon, MP Fadlallah described as ‘massacre’ the deadly ambush in which 7 civilians were martyred in Tayouneh on Thursday (October 14), urging the Lebanese authorities to punish those responsible.
“What the criminals did is a massacre and it will have important ramifications,” he said.
“Those who incited, planned, … and opened fire should be held to account all the way up to the top.”
Militants affiliated with Lebanese Forces Party on Thursday ambushed civilians heading to the Justice Palace to protest against politicization of investigation into Beirut Port blast. Seven Lebanese people were killed and dozens injured as snipers opened fire at civilians.
