Lebanon – Attack in the southern suburbs of Beirut (February 19, 2014)
France condemns this morning’s attack in the southern suburbs of Beirut, close to the Iranian cultural center, which, according to the latest reports, has left 4 people dead and more than 100 injured.
We extend our condolences to the victims’ families and call on the Lebanese authorities to shed full light on this terrorist act.
France reaffirms its full support for Lebanon and its institutions, which are the guarantors of the country’s stability and integrity.
While an agreement has allowed Lebanon to establish a government in the national interest that is determined to make security one of its priorities, France calls on all parties to unite and to make efforts to respond to the attempts to destabilize the country.
