Salem: protect Kfar Falous

The opening of the Kfar Falous crossing is not enough on its own, industry minister Nadim Salem said on Saturday, and he urged the government to ensure more development projects are carried out in the area.

“The crossing was opened thanks to the determination of the residents, but the people now need assistance,” Salem said during a visit to his home town. “We must ensure that those who were forced to flee can return and that its inhabitants can continue to live there.”

“I appeal to the army to make it easier to cross and to protect Kfar Falous because when the whole area is liberated, we want their protection,” added Salem, who is  MP of Jezzine, a major town inside the Israeli occupied zone. However, he refused to comment on the prospects of an Israeli withdrawal from the Jezzine panhandle but stressed that he backed the implementation of UN resolution 425 which calls for the Jewish state’s unconditional withdrawal from all territories it occupies in Lebanon.
