Mashnouq: We are coordinating with
Hezbollah to aid Tfeil residents

BEIRUT - Interior Minister Nohad Mashnouq announced that he is coordinating with Hezbollah to assist the residents of the town of Tfeil currently under siege.

 

“We are coordinating on the political and security levels with Hezbollah to help Lebanese citizens who wish to leave do so,” Mashnouq told Al-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper in an interview published on Friday.

 

He added: “I have been following up on the town’s situation for a week.”

 

“The most important goal we are working on today is protecting the residents of the area and keeping the town distanced from the Syrian conflict.”

 

Over 4,000 Lebanese citizens and 10,000 Syrian refugees are currently under siege in the border town of Tfeil, living without supplies of food, electricity, shelter, or aid for four months.

I have been following up on the town’s situation for a week.
