07 Jun 2019
Lebanon - Interior and Municipalities Minister, Rayya Al Hassan, on Friday said that the northern city of Tripoli has proved that it deplores all types of extremism.
Minister Al Hassan chaired on Friday an extraordinary meeting of the Central Security Council, devoted to discussing the repercussions of the terrorist operation that took place in Tripoli earlier this week, that led to the deaths of Lebanese army captain Hussein Ali Farhat, Internal Security Forces corporal Johny Khalil, Gendarme Youssef Ali Faraj and army soldier Ibrahim Mohammad Saleh.
The meeting decided to set up a virtual operations room in each region designed to manage any security crisis that may occur, under the supervision of the concerned judiciary and in the presence of a judge.
Details of this decision will be discussed during the regular meeting of the security services' chiefs.
In the wake of the meeting, Al Hassan held a press conference on the details of Monday Tripoli attack and the available information about the terrorist who perpetrated the terror crime.
"Investigation is conducted by the security services that are carrying out all what is needed to unveil the details in a professional and skilled manner under the supervision of the concerned judiciary and in accordance with its directives," the Minister corroborated.
Al Hassan cautioned that "it is dangerous to exploit a terrorist crime for sectarian and political incitement," adding that "Tripoli has proved before and after this terrorist operation that it deplores all types of extremism and is not a breeding ground for terrorism."
