Hasan Nasrallah, secretary-general of the Lebanese Islamic party Hezbollah, has called for necessarily dealing with the issue of the Palestinian refugees working in Lebanon from a moral and humanitarian perspective.
In televised remarks on Friday, Nasrallah said that some people in Lebanon incite against Hezbollah and Hamas and accuse them of being behind Palestinian protests against recent work measures, describing such accusation as “shameful, immoral and an attempt to twist facts.”
“In our opinion, there is a difference between Palestinian workers and other foreigners because the country of the former is under occupation and they cannot return to it,” the Hezbollah leader stated.
“The Palestinian is a refugee and associated with a national cause backed unanimously by Lebanon and the Arab region,” he said.
He also underlined that there is no connection between the work of the Palestinians in Lebanon and resettlement, adding that he supports the launch of a Lebanese-Palestinian dialog, but he called for dealing with this file wisely.
Lebanon is enjoying peace and dignity today and faces no aggression thanks to the Resistance forces, Nasrallah said.
