Lebanese Mufti Muhammad Rashid Kabbani said Tuesday Lebanon will have no sectarian sedition, state-run National News Agency (NNA) reported.

In a message on the eve of the holy month of Ramadan, Kabbani said that Lebanon constitutes an exceptional national case " dazzling the world" with its social formula that was capable of " overcoming seditions and wars."

"We finally got rid of the sectarian cause of sedition in Lebanon, so there will be no Sunni-Shiite sedition or Islamic- Christian sedition in Lebanon," said the Mufti.

Kabbani added that the Lebanese must be aware of the conspiracies "of the Israeli enemy."

Tensions have been on the rise in Lebanon as the indictment for the assassination of the late Prime Minister Rafik Hariri is expected to be announced soon by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL).

Shiite group Hezbollah said the STL will accuse some of its members.
