A friendly football match that gathered a number of rival Lebanese politicians on Tuesday in commemoration of the 35th anniversary of the Lebanese Civil War that broke out on April 13, 1975.

All 30 Cabinet ministers and lawmakers from both the majority March 14 coalition and the Hizbullah-led March 8 alliance as well as ambassadors, security chiefs and presidents of Lebanese sports associations were also invited to the game under the emblem “we are all one team.”

Phalange Party Central Committee Coordinator MP Sami Gemayel scored two goals for the team led by PM Saad Hariri.

Hariri earlier issued a statement calling for “coexistence and total parity between Muslims and Christians” as Lebanon commemorates the war’s outbreak.

This is not just an occasion to remember the tragedies of the past, but also to induce us to take lessons from it … and work with all Lebanese without exception to build a better future for our children,” he said.
