Lebanese civil war watch

Lebanon's National bloc has reacted angrily to Wednesday's appearance of a Hezbullah terrorist who escaped from an Egyptian prison at a Beirut rally.
The National Bloc said Friday that the appearance of Mohammad Yusuf Mansour, also known as Sami Shehab, at a Wednesday rally in Beirut was an “offensive violation” of Lebanese and Egyptian sovereignty.

Shehab, the head of a 22-member Hezbollah terror cell who escaped from an Egyptian prison during the Cairo uprising, was tried and convicted in Egypt, the bloc said in a statement, adding that Shehab is therefore not a freed prisoner who ought to celebrate his liberation.

“Is war or peace Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s decision? When he announces he wants peace or war, he is violating the constitution.”
