Lebanon military court to ask Lebaese Forces party leader to give statement on street violence

BEIRUT (Reuters) – A Lebanese military court will ask Lebanese Forces (LF) party leader Samir Geagea to give a statement about last week’s Beirut street violence, sources with knowledge of the matter told Reuters on Thursday.

Geagea, who was due to appear shortly on a local television show, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The bloodshed was the worst Lebanon had seen in over a decade and the Iran-backed Shi’ite Hezbollah group has accused LF of being responsible for it, a charge denied by Geagea.
