Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah
The head of Fatah in Lebanon told a local newspaper that Hezbollah had prevented several of the group’s planned attacks along the Israeli border—in some cases going so far as to turn the militants over to Lebanese authorities.
Fatah secretary general in Lebanon Sultan Abu al-Einin said Thursday that four attempted attacks by the group near the Israeli border have been curbed by Hezbollah.
In an interview with the Nazareth-based newspaper Kul al-Arab, al-Einin said that in some of the incidents Hezbollah operatives detained the Palestinian militants sent to carry out the attacks and handed them over [to] the Lebanese law-enforcement authorities.
United States Senator Arlen Specter said Thursday that Syrian President Bashar Assad denied accusations he is supporting Hamas and Hezbollah.
