Jumblat slams Syria, Hezbollah, says Lebanon 'gone with the wind'

Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Jumblat has said that the decision of war and peace is in the hands of Iran and Hezbollah, as long as Lebanon doesn't have a defense strategy.

In a TV interview, Jumblat urged the Arab states to support the army, the internal security forces, and the institutions, which are collapsing.

"Lebanon is gone with the wind," Jumblat said, as he mentioned Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah's statement about the Mediterranean gas.

He went on to criticize the Syrian regime, adding that calling for the Syrian refugees repatriation is nonsense.

"This regime does not care about anyone or any sect, it uses everyone for its own interests in order to maintain power," Jumblat said.

Earlier on Sunday, Jumblat had criticized U.S. President Joe Biden's visit to Palestine. He said that the latter had failed to pronounce the name of slain Palestinian American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh correctly.

"He has officially signed the death certificate of the Palestinian state," Jumblat said of Biden.
