Walid Jumblatt, the prominent Lebanese Druse leader, said on Friday that Israel’s intervention was not needed to help his community in Syria just days after a massacre by Nusra Front gunmen claimed the lives of 25 Druse villagers in Idlib.
The leader of Lebanon's Druse said the incident was an isolated one.
"Until this moment, numbers say that more than 350,000 were killed in Syria by the Syrian regime and there are more than seven million refugees displaced inside Syria as well as three million outside Syria, between Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey,” said Jumblatt, who is also a member of Lebanon’s parliament and the head of the Progressive Socialist Party.
“This was an individual incident and I will deal with it politically through my local and international calls," he said.
