“Hezbollah must not believe itself stronger than it is”

The political parties had made a commitment to Mr. Macron, who came to Beirut in early September, to form a cabinet of ministers “Competent” and “Independent” within two weeks.

But on Saturday, the prime minister designate, Moustapha Adib, charged on August 31 to train him, threw in the towel, highlighting the lack of a consensus between the parties despite the urgency of carrying out the reforms demanded by the international community to unlock billions of dollars in aid. This renunciation seems to mark the failure of the initiative launched after the tragic explosion of August 4 at the port of Beirut by the French president.

Mr. Macron attacked the Shiite Hezbollah party, which he said “Must not believe himself stronger than he is”. Hezbollah “Cannot at the same time be an army at war against Israel, a militia unleashed against civilians in Syria and a respectable party in Lebanon. It is up to him to demonstrate that he respects the Lebanese as a whole. In recent days, he has clearly shown the opposite ”.
