Hizbullah: We Sent Proof on Israel to UN Court
Sources in the Hizbullah terror group said that it had supplied “definitive evidence” to the UN committee investigating the murder of former Lebanese President Rafik al-Hariri that Israel was behind his death. Hizbullah handed over documents it says proves this to the Lebanese government, which in turn submitted them to the UN.
With that, a Hizbullah official who is a member of the Lebanese government was quoted in Lebanese media as saying that “it doesn't matter what we think about the UN court, as far as we are concerned it cannot be trusted.” Observers believe that the latest reports on “proof” of Israeli involvement was to build a smokescreen against the more than likely possibility that the court will indict Hizbullah itself for the murder.
