Lebanon, the ‘only country’ to regain all its detainees from Israeli Jails
Sayyed Nasrallah went on TV today, to broadcast a press conference regarding the latest news on the Lebanese detainees in Israel and the swap deal between the two.
I expect that in a week or two it will be implemented. July 15 is the most probable, a bit before or a bit after,” … “If I specify a date, the Israelis will only change it“
This is an immense leap for Lebanon, as Lebanese from all sects and political camps lauded Hezbollah’s achievement in the swap deal, making Lebanon the only country to regain all its detainees from Israel. This blog should note, there still remain Lebanese detained in the most harsh Syrian jails. Sayyed Nasrallah went on for a good portion of his speech to ask Lebanese not to celebrate by shooting in the air.
Israeli-Lebanese Check List:
- Occupation: Shebaa Farms & Kafar Shuba Hills
- Detainees: Lebanese/Israeli POW exchange (soon to be conducted)
- Expropriate: Lebanese Waters by Israel (UNIFIL/FINUL)
- Border Crossings & Overflights
- Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon
