The House of Representatives (HoR) demanded the Lebanese authorities and the Arab League to clarify their position on what it described as the assault against the Libyan state in Lebanon.

"The HoR condemns the assault action against the Libyan flag, the symbol of its independence, by Lebanese Shi'a movement "Amal" in the capital Beirut," HoR stressed in a statement.

It also called on the Lebanese authorities, who said it turned a blind eye on the incident, to take action on these unfortunate and unjustified actions, saying that such aggressive behaviour harms Lebanon before it insults Libya, the statement read.
