Velayati: Accusations of Hezbollah are fabrications

Ali Akbar Velayati, top adviser of the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said during his visit to the Khiam prison museum on Friday that the rumors over indictments of Hezbollah by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) are not be “based on any sound evidence.”

Velayati stated that accusations of Hezbollah were being fabricated to politically pressure the party and sow division within Lebanon.

Velayati , who was accompanied by Hezbollah’s top official for south Lebanon, Nabil Qaouk added: “Lebanon will not permit its enemies to achieve their Satanic goals.” He praised Hezbollah group which he said is “proudly sponsored and supported by the government and people of Iran.”

His comment came following reports of Hezbollah leader’s insistence that Prime Minister Saad Hariri should declare Hezbollah innocent in the murder of Lebanon’s former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

The special tribunal for Lebanon (STL) which is an independent court was formed by the United Nations security council to try the killers of the former Lebanese PM.

No one really knows what the contents of the STL indictments will be like , but the leader of the Iranian backed Hezbollah , Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah admitted in his speech on Thursday July 22 that some of his party members would be named in the tribunal’s formal charges but stressed that he will reject the indictments.

Nasrallah also said last Tuesday that he will reveal proof and evidence in an August 9 press conference proving that Israel was behind the assassination.

    Yes as Iran interferes more with Lebanon and trying to assert its influence thru hezbollah. Syria I bet is pretty ticked off and I am sure they will be eventually on a collision course. I heard Syria is trying to extract Aoun from Hezbollah in trying to get him to support Syria more. That’s what happened when you axises of evil crossing each other. They will collide to somewhere with no return.

      you imagine if the pope or a bishop in Rome commented saying ( and only hypothetical)that the accusations against Lebanese Forces has no foundation, oh wow, it will open hell and cry from all over the moslem world about the Vatican interference, and here you have the Mullah state coming and treating Lebanon like a piece of land under Hizbollah rule, fffff…….enough is enough , the day this regime in Iran is over should be declared a holy day in the world!!!!
