‘Hezbollah Arms not Israel’s Business’

Israel has received a humiliating rebuff over its recent remarks about Hezbollah arms after a senior official said the movement’s weaponry are not Tel Aviv’s business.

Hezbollah-affiliated government minister Hussein Hajj Hassan said Friday that the movement is always arming and preparing itself against foreign threats, but "what we have is not their (Israel’s) business," Lebanon’s al-Manar TV reported.

He said Israel possesses all kinds of weapons so Lebanon will acquire every means to defend itself against Tel Aviv’s attacks.

Israel’s President Shimon Peres had earlier claimed that Syria provided Hezbollah with Scud missiles capable of reaching targets anywhere in Israel.

Damascus however denied the allegations "which are an attempt by Israel to raise tensions in the region," the foreign ministry said in a statement.

"Israel is seeking to create a climate that will pave the way for an eventual Israeli attack to avoid responding to the demands of a just and comprehensive peace," it added.

Tensions mounted between Israel and Lebanon after the regime’s forces crossed into the Lebanese border town of Abbassiyeh last week.

Israeli troops, however; withdraw from the town after Lebanon issued a warning to them.
