Did Nida Al Watan just go publicly anti-Hizbollah?

Nida Al Watan, now has a new campaign rolling - with the "pen" breaking down so many ills in the Lebanese society, things like "fasad" (corruption), "mou7asasa" (power division due to sect), and other things including "sila7 ghayr char3i" (illegal weapons) which is code-word for Hizbollah arms. I went back and searched on all platforms if there is any wink (overt or otherwise) about where they stand politically and there was none. Their manifesto says nothing about it. So it is intersting they jumped the fence so early in the game declaring themselves as anti-Hizbollah. This in itself delimitates its audience and who reads it and follows it online.
