Lebanon’s Defense Minister Elias Murr says the weapons truck intercepted outside Beirut didn’t come from Syria. And he went on to say NO weapons have come across the border.
“The ammunition did not come from Syria, but are from within Lebanon,” said Murr. “We are in full control of the Lebanese-Syrian border.”
“Not even a mosquito enters without us knowing,” said Murr. “There are no arms entering from Syria.”
Hizbollah has admitted it owns the weapons, which were being transported down to the south. The Defence Minister is refusing to give them back – he says it is a “gift” to the Lebanese army.
The weapons “will be presented to the Lebanese troops stationed in the South who proved themselves that they can protect Lebanon against Israeli aggression.”
