The head of the “Lebanese Forces” party, Samir Geagea, said that he is “under the law”, a week after the events in Tayouneh, which accused “Hezbollah” and “Amal Movement”, the “forces” of practicing direct sniping with the aim of killing.
Geagea said in a tweet via “Twitter”: “I, as the head of a legitimate Lebanese party, are under the law. But for justice to be established, the judiciary must deal with all parties in the country on the basis that they are under the law,” adding: “It appears that the main party in the Ain El-Remmaneh events considers himself Above the law, and unfortunately, the military judiciary has so far kept up with this belief.”

It appears that the main party in the events of Ain al-Remmaneh considers itself above the law, and unfortunately the military judiciary has kept up with this belief so far.

It is noteworthy that there are direct mutual accusations between Geagea and the Secretary-General of the Lebanese “Hezbollah”, Hassan Nasrallah, about who caused the Tayouneh events.
The leaderships of “Hezbollah” and “Amal Movement” had said that “groups of the “Lebanese Forces” party spread on the rooftops of buildings and practiced direct sniping to premeditated killing,” while the head of the media apparatus in communication with the “Lebanese Forces” party, Charles Jabbour, said, One of the snipers in the Tayouneh incidents was affiliated with Hezbollah, and he was smuggled in a car.
At least 7 people were killed during armed unrest in the Tayouneh area in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, last Thursday, which the authorities described as an attack on demonstrators who were heading to participate in a protest called by “Hezbollah” and the “Amal” movement to demand the dismissal of the investigating judge in the Beirut port explosion.
