An envoy of Arab League representatives arrived in Beirut on Monday in an attempt to stabilize the Lebanese political crisis.
Hizballah leader Hassan Nasrallah accepted in principle an Arab League plan to stabilize the Lebanese political crisis. He told the envoy that he “sees the initiative as positive.”
According to the plan, the number of ministers in the Lebanese government will grow to 30. Two-thirds of them will represent the parliamentary majority and one-third the opposition.
Nasrallah gave his approval a few hours after nearly one million Lebanese opposition supporters called on the pro-western government to resign or submit. The protesters shouted anti-Israel threats. “Death to America, death to Israel, long live a dignified Lebanon,” they yelled.
Pro-Syrian supporters and Hizballah were responsible for kidnapping two Israel Defense Forces soldiers sparking the month-long Lebanon War, firing Katyusha’s and bombarding Israel’s northern towns.
