Finance Minister Says All Limits Vanished in Wake of Bassil's Insult

Finance Minister Ali Hassan Khalil fired back at Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil, blasting him as a disrespectful and low person. "If anyone out there is hearing me, then let him know that his favorite son-in-law is a disrespectful and low person as his rhetoric is filled with decadence and sectarian croaking; a rhetoric that belongs to the dwarfs of politics," Khalil, Berri's political aide, wrote on Twitter shortly after Bassil's video had gone viral.
