NLP condemns attack on Al-Jadeed

The National Liberal Party condemned Friday the latest attack that targeted Al-Jadeed television station’s headquarters, saying it was an assault against “freedom in general.” 

Unidentified masked men attacked on Monday evening the headquarters of Al-Jadeed television in the Beirut area of Wata al-Msaytbeh and burned tires on the TV station’s property.

Later in the evening the TV station reported that the army’s intelligence service arrested one of the assailants, identified as Wissam Alaeddine. The arrest sparked several protests in Beirut later in the week.

The NLP also criticized in a statement the blocking of roads across Lebanon. 

The party called on the government to fulfill its responsibilities, saying that slackness “would encourage chaotic actions.”
