Lebanon’s Prime Minister, Saad ‎al-Hariri called Hezbollah’s arms ‎illegitimate on Tuesday after its ‎President Michel Aoun said the ‎group’s military wing was vital to ‎its security, spelling out the ‎country’s political divisions more ‎clearly than at any time since ‎they took office.‎

‎"We will not compromise on the ‎fundamentals ... our view of the ‎Assad ‎regime and its crimes, our ‎stance towards the illegitimate ‎arms and ... ‎Hezbollah’s ‎involvement in Syria," al-Hariri  ‎said at a ceremony in central ‎Beirut ‎marking the 12th ‎anniversary of his father’s ‎assassination.‎

Hezbollah has become deeply ‎embroiled in the war in Syria, ‎where its terrorists are fighting in ‎support of Assad regime.‎

Rafik al-Hariri, the father of the ‎current PM, was killed in a 2005 ‎Beirut waterfront bombing that ‎also killed 21 others, shaking the ‎country and pushing his son Sa’ad ‎into politics.‎

Michel ‎Aoun became president in ‎October in a ‎power-sharing deal ‎that ‎saw Saad al-Hariri, ‎Lebanon’s leading Sunni ‎Muslim ‎politician, appointed premier in a ‎unity cabinet ‎including nearly ‎all ‎Lebanon’s main parties.‎
