NNA – The Future Movement and Future Parliamentary Bloc organized, under the directives of PM-designate Saad Hariri, a stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people at the border strip with occupied Palestine in the town of Marwahin in Tyre district this afternoon.

Palestinian and Lebanese flags were raised by the Movement’s participating delegations from different regions.

At the forefront of participants was Head of the Bloc, MP Bahiya Hariri, and MPs Walid al-Baarini, Mohammad Sleiman, Assem Araji, Mohammad al-Qaraawi and Tarek al-Merehbi, as well as Future Movement Secretary-General Ahmed Hariri, General Coordinator in Sidon and the South Mazen Hashishou, and a number of political and executive bureau members and religious dignitaries in the region.

In a word on behalf of the Future Bloc and Movement, MP Hariri said: “We condemn and denounce in the strongest terms the destruction, killing and brutal assault that our people in Gaza are exposed to, and we also condemn the new attempts to transfer our people in Palestine within the 48 borders and in Al-Quds Al-Sharif and Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, and we call on the international community and the Security Council to oblige the Israeli enemy to immediately stop these practices.”

She added: “We also call for affirming the right of the Palestinian people to establish their state on their land, with holy Jerusalem as its capital.”

Hariri hailed the steadfastness of the Palestinian people in the face of Israeli racist practices in Jerusalem, the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, and the cities and villages within the borders of 1948.

“We wanted today to be here with our people in southern Lebanon, who have faced aggression and occupation for decades, and still do,” Hariri maintained, adding, “We stand here to raise our voice loudly and say to our people in beloved Palestine that we are proud of your steadfastness and your confrontation against the barbaric racist attack that has revived the conscience of all the free people of the world, and that with your steadfastness and resistance you have renewed your just cause in the minds of the emerging generations in the Arab world and the world at large.”
