July 7, 2020
The World Council for the Cedars Revolution applauds the brave demonstraters who gathered outside the US Embassy in Awkar on July 4 to demand the full implementation of UNSCR 1559, calling for the disarming and disbanding of Iranian proxy militia, Hezbollah, and the return of full sovereignty to the people of Lebanon.
“There is no salvation for Lebanon except by dissolving and disarming the militias, restricting weapons to the army, restricting the decision for war and peace to the state, and extending its authority over all Lebanese territory,” they said, as reported by Naharnet.
The Embassy replied:
Thank you to the group of Lebanese that made our #IndependenceDay special by gathering to express appreciation to the U.S. for its ongoing partnership and support for #Lebanon’s security, humanitarian, and development challenges. ???— U.S. Embassy Beirut (@usembassybeirut) July 4, 2020
WCCR would ike to thank Ambassador Shea for her staunch support of the people of Lebanon in their struggle to throw of the Iranian yoke in the form of Hezbollah. On this fourth of July, we pray for freedom for all the world's people.
