Premier Hariri expressed the highest degree of solidarity with Arsal and its citizens, and with Tripoli which will not stop saying the word of truth and supporting the honorable sons of the nation. History will praise their support of the oppressed Syrian people and their hospitality towards the displaced people to whom they provided relief. History will also record that Hezbollah is responsible of luring the Syrian fire to Lebanon and participating in a war in which it decided to support the regime of Bashar al-Assad at the expense of the Syrian people and the safety of Lebanon.
Hariri announced, after concerting with Former Prime Minister Fuad Siniora and the General Secretariat of the Future Movement, the formation of two working groups of the Future parliamentary bloc and Movement, in order to develop an urgent plan aiming to participate in solving the emergency social and humanitarian cases in Tripoli and Arsal as well as providing elements of popular resilience to the citizens of the two areas.
To this aim, Hariri contacted President Michel Suleiman, Prime Minister Tammam Salam and Army commander Jean Kahwaji, stressing that the state, with all its concerned apparatus, should remove the injustice targeting Arsal, and take on the required responsibility to face the suspicious campaigns and contain the incitement and the unacceptable blockade.
