68 percent of those surveyed believe that if Hezbollah is disarmed, the Zionist regime will be encouraged to attack Lebanon again. 

According to the poll which was conducted by the Beirut Center for Research and Information, 78 percent of the respondents also agreed with the proposal to launch an investigation into the “false witnesses” by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) which probes the 2005 assassination of former prime minister Rafik Hariri. 

68 percent of the respondents also voted yes to the proposal to cut the government’s financial contribution to the STL. Only 28 percent of the people polled agreed that the government should pay for the court.

The poll also suggests that 70 percent of the Lebanese people favor the triangular formula comprising the army, nation and the resistance movement to protect the country against the Zionist regime’s invasions.

Asked about Syria, 53 percent of those surveyed said that if Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad remains in office, it will be more helpful to the neighboring Lebanon.
