Geagea calls on Security Council to end war in Syria


Lebanese Forces Leader, Samir Geagea, called on the Security Council to put an end to the Syrian military operations.

"I ask the Security Council to abandon their narrow interests and take a historic decision under Chapter VII to stop all the military operations in Syria, in order to carry out the desired political transition after all that happened," Geagea said in statement on Monday.

He appealed to "the permanent members of the Security Council to feel the magnitude of the human tragedy witnessed in Syria for seven years now, which has cost more than half a million lives, millions of displaced people and humanitarian tragedies reminiscent of the global wars."

"Dealing with the Syrian crisis through television screens and political stances does not commensurate with the ongoing tragedy," Geagea concluded.
