Prominent French MP inspects, condemns Hezbollah attack tunnel

A prominent French MP inspects one of the Hezbollah attack tunnels recently discovered on the Lebanese border.

“The tunnels definitely increase the risk of war and are an attack by Hezbollah on Israel. The UN must take responsibility and UNIFIL needs to maintain peace,” Claude Goasguen says after entering the tunnel.

Goasguen, a member of the center-right Republicans, is member of the French National Assembly’s Foreign Affairs Committee, where he is responsible for reporting on the situation in the Middle East and recommending French policy in the region.

“We are on the eve of war, which no one wants,” he says. “Hezbollah must be held accountable, and it’s the responsibility of the Lebanese government to ensure calm for the sake of peace.”
