|Hezbollah critics provide cover for takfiris: Lebanese FM||
Lebanon's caretaker Foreign Affairs Minister Adnan Mansour said Wednesday critics of Hezbollah's role in Syria seek to divert attention from the takfiri threat, at a UN peace conference on Syria.
"Whoever claims that Hezbollah's participation in Syria affects Lebanon seeks to divert attention from the facts and [provide a] cover for the presence of takfiris and extremist groups in Lebanon,” Mansour said, according to The Daily Star.
Lebanon’s Future movement has blamed Hezbollah’s intervention in Syria for the series of car bomb attacks in Beirut’s southern suburbs and last week’s bombing in the northeastern town of Hermel, saying the attacks are the result of the group’s military involvement alongside the Damascus regime.
Head of the bloc former PM Saad Hariri said last week that he is willing to join a Cabinet with the Hezbollah-led March 8 group.
