Hezbollah Executive Chief Tells BBC “We’ve Been Defending People’s Demands All Along”
Chief of Hezbollah Executive Council His Eminence Sayyed Hashem Safieddine said that the Lebanese resistance movement has been supporting the people’s demands all along, stressing that the demands of the protesters in Lebanon are rightful.
In an interview with the BBC, Sayyed Safieddine added that Hezbollah will transfer all the demands to any future government.
The Hezbollah senior official, however, warned of the economic track that is pushing the country to the abyss.
“In order for the honest cries of most of the people who are suffering in different Lebanese areas to be purposeful, it should be filtered from all the leaderships, sides and embassies that “rode the wave” for political goals.”
Sayyed Safieddine stressed further that “Hezbollah had a reform raft that was way bigger than what was agreed on in the Cabinet,” noting that Hezbollah’s political track provides that the taxes shouldn’t be paid by the poor people.
He also emphasized that the talks on forming the new government have seriously began, adding that communications are still in the first stage.
“We are still approaching the pains, rhetoric, emotions of the squares, and we carry such demands. We also don’t consider there is a link between what is happening in Lebanon and the protests in Iraq,” Sayyed Safieddine concluded.
