United States Condemns Car Bomb Attack in Lebanon
The United States is deeply concerned about the latest violence in Lebanon. We condemn the car bomb explosion today that killed Saleh al-Aridi, a ranking official in the Lebanese Democratic Party, and wounded four people in the town of Baisour, and call upon all parties to respect the rule of law.
No one has a right to deprive Lebanese citizens of their political freedom, their right to move freely within their country, or their sense of safety and security.
Our support for the Lebanese government and its democratic institutions is unwavering. This support is a reflection of our unshakeable commitment to the Lebanese people and their hope for democratic change and economic prosperity.
