The head of the Lebanese Forces office in Zahle's Ferzol is still detained by the Army after a dispute broke out early Sunday morning over the LF's attempt to erect a monument commemorating its fallen.The dispute, the latest incarnation of tensions between the two major Christian parties, escalated into a fierce war of words that culminated in the arrest of the LF's area head Youssef Saide, along with five other men affiliated with the LF who were later released.The monument was confiscated by the Army in the evening, an LF source told The Daily Star.In a news conference held by LF MPs George Okeis and Maalouf in the afternoon to address the issue, the party called for an Army investigation into the incident.The party said it was granted the necessary licenses from Ferzol Municipality to build the monument but was unjustly halted by Daher and the Army.
