Second: forming a national unity government composed of 30 ministers distributed among the majority (16 ministers), the opposition (11 ministers) and the president (3 ministers), and by virtue of this agreement, all parties commit not to resign or obstruct the government’s actions. 

Fourth: Pursuant to the above mentioned Beirut Agreement, especially Paragraphs 4 and 5, which stated the following:

Paragraph 4: The parties commit to abstain from having recourse or resuming the use of weapons and violence in order to record political gains.

Paragraph 5: Initiate a dialogue on promoting the Lebanese state’s authority over all Lebanese territory and their relationship with the various groups on the Lebanese stage in order to ensure the state’s and the citizens’ security.

Hence, the dialogue was initiated in Doha on promoting the state’s authority according to Paragraph 5 of the Beirut Agreement, and an agreement was reached on the following:

- Prohibiting the use of weapons or violence or taking refuge in them in any dispute whatsoever and under any circumstances, in order to ensure respect for the national partnership contract, based on the Lebanese people’s commitment to live with one another within the framework of the Lebanese system, and to restrict the security and military authority over Lebanese nationals and residents to the state alone so as to ensure the continuity of the coexistence formula and civil peace among all the Lebanese; and the parties pledge to all of the above.

- Implementing the law and upholding the sovereignty of the state throughout Lebanon so as not to have regions that serve as safe havens for outlaws, out of respect for the supremacy of the law, and referring all those who commit crimes and contraventions to the Lebanese judiciary.



Hezbollah source threatens escalation
January 19, 2011
A source close to Hezbollah said Wednesday that the party has made the decision to implement “scenario plans” in Lebanon in the coming period.
“Only a few people in Hezbollah’s closed circle know the details of the party’s plans to escalate [the situation],” the source – speaking on condition of anonymity – told NOW Lebanon.
“The zero hour for the post-Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) indictment phase has really begun.”
The source said that Hezbollah’s next actions could target “every official or unofficial, domestic or international institution that is cooperating or even just in communication with the STL.”
“Tuesday’s scenario [of crowds mobilizing in Beirut neighborhoods] does not necessarily have to be repeated, but each day will have a different scenario from the one that preceded it.”
When asked about Hezbollah’s possible domestic use of arms, the source said that “the party considers that the tribunal’s indictment targets the Resistance and its arms, and its [Secretary General ] Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah has already announced that the [use of] weapons protects [Hezbollah’s] weapons.”
Crowds of young men gathered in some Beirut neighborhoods early Tuesday morning, causing some schools to close amid fears of potential violence. Parents were seen taking their children out of classes.
STL Prosecutor-General Daniel Bellemare submitted his indictment on former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri’s 2005 assassination on Monday.
Hezbollah has demanded that Lebanon reject the tribunal and on January 12 withdrew from the cabinet with its allies, precipitating the government’s collapse.
