Hezbollah Blocked Fatah Attacks
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.
