Hezbollah urges uncovering, execution of spies


Hezbollah’s parliamentary bloc urged Wednesday uncovering and execution of individuals charged with collaborating with Israel.

The bloc also called for “thoroughly cleansing the telecommunications sector and restructuring it in a way that would guarantee the security of the citizens and prevent Israelis from infiltrating it.”

Lebanon has arrested three suspects over the past month in an expanding probe into an alleged network of Israeli spies employed in the country’s telecom sector.

The bloc warned in a statement after its weekly meeting of attempts to “falsely accuse the Resistance and its fighters in favor of cheap political interests that only serve the Zionist enemy.” This is in reference to the reports over Hezbollah indictments by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon ( STL)

According to As Safir report that was published Tuesday STL may indict in two rounds 23 to 25 Hezbollah members between September and the end of the year.

A report in the German Der Spiegel magazine dated May 2009 revealed a link between Hezbollah and the assassination of Lebanon’s former PM Rafik Hariri, father of the current prime minister.

STL was formed by the United Nations to try the killers of former PM Hariri , who was assassinated on February 14 , 2005.

The bloc noted: “Special fraternal ties with Syria are translated through strategic cooperation that would encompass security, military, and diplomatic fields to confront Israel.”

The recent agreements that were signed between Lebanon and Syria need further follow up that would serve both countries’ great national interests, the bloc added. Naharnet
