The Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation (LBC) apologized Tuesday evening for its news report equaling the Palestinian resistance operations with terrorism attacks.
Israel is and will forever remain an enemy as it is an occupying power in Palestinian territories, LBC’s administration said.
All the international conventions and mainly The Hague Convention recognize the legitimate right of Palestinian people to resist occupation, the administration added.
LBC has broadcasted on Monday a news report about terrorism attacks on nightclubs around the world and included resistance operations carried out by the Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, against Israeli targets in 2001 and 2002.
The news report was widely criticized by online activists using the hashtag #ResistanceNotTerrorism, demanding an official apology from LBC’s administration.
Hamas Movement slammed the Lebanese TV channel LBC over the news report and emphasized that the motives and aims of terrorism are completely different from the motives and aims of resistance.
The Movement pointed out that the Palestinian people are the most affected by terrorist attacks and are defending themselves and their lands.
