You, Mr. Macron, came to tell us that we were the ones who had elected Hezbollah, and so we will have to live with its weapons! You yourself however, do not practice what you preach.

It’s like asking a person to sing even when his voice is not suitable for singing, or even stifled!” This was the farmer Ali Taha’s response to the recent calls for active farming, especially those made by the Secretary General of “Hezbollah,” Hassan Nasrallah, in which he called for reliance on agriculture using the term “agricultural jihad!”
The collapse began to reach us through small stories. A young man committed suicide in Hamra street in the middle of the day, and another was found hanging in the Al-Zeina valley region, north of Saida.
