Lebanese MPs exchange accusations of “sectarianism and sacrilege”


Yesterday, a session of the joint committees in the Lebanese Parliament witnessed a fierce debate that reached the point of talking about “violating the sacred,” in a confrontation that took place between the head of the “Lebanese Phalange” party, Representative Sami Gemayel, and the political aide to Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri, former deputy and minister Ali Hassan Khalil.
The debate almost developed into a new crisis in the country, but Speaker Berri later called MP Gemayel, to remedy the repercussions of what happened, followed by an apology call from MP Ali Hassan Khalil. .
