READ: Statements from Lebanese political leaders:

President Michel Aoun


“Targeting Britain repeatedly with brutal attacks indicates that it still stands in the face of dark and inhuman ideologies represented by terrorism, which is desperately trying to circulate them as an alternative culture to the dialogue of civilizations and religions. The Lebanese stand in solidarity with Britain in fending off all kinds of terrorism.”

Speaker Nabih Berri


“We reaffirm our strong condemnation of the terrorist acts that targeted London Bridge and Boro Market, which resulted in the death and injury of a large number of innocent civilians.”

Prime Minister Saad Hariri


“There are always attempts to link Islam to terrorism. Islam is innocent of these terrorist acts.”

MP Walid Jumblatt


“I hope the foundations of Western democracy would remain firm and strong, since it reflects the values of freedom and human rights regardless of its positions vis-à-vis various issues. I deplore this terrorist act and extend my condolences and sympathy to the British Government, the British people and the victims’ families.

We will update statements as they become available.
