March 14 slams cabinet for ‘hiding its head in sand’ over Syrian infiltration
The March 14 forces have criticized the government for remaining silent on the infiltration of Syrian troops into territories in eastern Lebanon, saying they will question the cabinet over its behavior.
High-ranking March 14 sources told An Nahar daily published on Wednesday that the official stance from Syrian infringement on Lebanese sovereignty is similar to “hiding the head in the sand rather than taking the initiative to give information and adopting the right approach” to solve the problem.
The opposition “will question the government on its behavior and hold it responsible for any harm inflicted on the Lebanese citizens and their properties in addition to the Syrian families that have taken refuge in Lebanon to escape oppression and killing,” the sources said.
They urged Lebanese authorities to take “preventive measures” to stop any international attempt to target Lebanon by “direct or indirect sanctions” over the events in Syria.
