The Minister of justice of Lebanon Ashraf rifi handed over to the government his resignation. In it Rifi blamed for the political crisis in Shi’ite group Hezbollah, to undermine the election of the President.
«The methods used by this quasi-state of «Hezbollah» and its allies, is absolutely unacceptable,» stressed Reefy, known as one of the most implacable opponents of Pro-Iranian groups.
The resignation of the Minister took place two days after Saudi Arabia suspended the operation of the agreement, under which Riyadh had to provide military assistance to Beirut in the amount of 4.000.000.000 dollars.
And in this case the reason was the policy of Hizbullah. The Saudi authorities expressed concern that the Lebanese army gives weapons to Hezbollah, and will be used against the moderate Syrian opposition, supported by Riyadh.
Recall: the political crisis in Lebanon began in may 2014, after the expiration of the presidential term of Michel Suleiman. Within 21 months, the country, a fifth of whose population are refugees from Syria, has no President.
