Hizbullah chief: ”Clean” government to be formed
Hizbullah chief Hassan Nasrallah has vowed to re-establish a "clean government." "This government will go and nothing associates us with it (government) after the resignations," Nasrallah late Monday told a crowd of about 6,000 residents who lost their homes in Beirut's southern suburbs during the July-August war.
He was referring to the resignation of the six ministers, five of them from Hizbullah and Amal on Saturday. "This country is ours. We sacrificed tens of thousands of martyrs, wounded, prisoners and disabled for the sake of safeguarding it (Lebanon) as well as protecting its dignity and glory; and we will not give up (these sacrifices)," the Beirut daily As Safir quoted Nasrallah as saying.
Addressing the Lebanese, Nasrallah said that "the clean government is coming up."
