The Lebanese ‘Saraya' (Brigades) for Resisting ‘Israeli' Occupation announced in a statement for the 13th anniversary of its foundation, its adherence to the resistance option, especially in light of the repeated threats by an ‘Israeli' enemy that is greedy for our homeland, its soil and wealth."
The Saraya renewed "Its pledge to the martyrs and our people that it will be in the honorable defense arena whenever duty calls."
The following is some of what came through in that statement:
"Thirteen years have passed since the birth of the Lebanese Saraya for Resisting ‘Israeli' Occupation, these years stand witness to the correctness of the resistance option that lifted the yoke of ‘Israeli' occupation from a large part of the homeland's soil.
The hearts of all liberals continue to look to the rest of the occupied captive territory with hope for its liberation.
On the foundation anniversary of the Lebanese Saraya we declare our adherence to the resistance option, especially in light of the repeated ‘Israeli' threats, the enemy greedy for our country, its soil and fortunes. We also renew our pledge to the martyrs and people that we are staying in the honorable defense arenas ever ready to do our duty when duty calls."
