He extended his condolences to the families of the victims of this bombing. The Special Coordinator said he continued to be disturbed by the recurrence of indiscriminate acts of violence in Lebanon during the past months. While aware of the pain and anger generated by such violence, the Special Coordinator urged all Lebanese to exercise restraint. Support of state institutions, including the army and the security forces, was the best way to safeguard the country’s security and stability. He hoped those responsible for today’s bombing and all other acts of terrorism will be brought to justice as soon as possible.
