MIKATI: WE DO NOT WANT WAR AND WE SEEK PEACE, BUT AT THE SAME TIME WE DO NOT WANT ANYONE TO DESECRATE LEBANESE LAND

Prime Minister Najib Mikati said today that 'the rules of engagement at the southern border between Lebanon and Israel remain the same, but there are no international guarantees that we can be assured of.' Speaking in an interview with the Turkish 'TRT' Station, Mikati wondered what guarantees can be given amidst the Israeli enemy's criminal psychology in killing children, women and the elderly, and causing displacement and destruction? He said: 'We see this aggression against Gaza taking place daily, and no one cares about it nor are there any international reactions.' He added: "We do not want war and we are seeking peace, but at the same time we do not want anyone to desecrate Lebanese land." In response to a question, Mikati said: 'We fully support the Palestinian cause, but we are trying as much as possible to spare Lebanon from entering into bloody battles.'
