FSA not involved in Dahiyeh
car bomb, spokesperson says

Free Syrian Army spokesperson Louay Almokdad on Friday denied any connection in car bomb Thursday that targeted Beirut’s Dahiyeh.


“The Free Syrian Army does not have any connection to the Dahiyeh attack,” Almokdad told Future TV.


He also criticized the speech held earlier in the day by Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and deemed it “incomprehensible.”


“[Nasrallah’s] speech is incomprehensible… there is no excuse for Hezbollah’s participation in the war in Syria,” he added.


Earlier in the day, Nasrallah blamed Islamist extremists for the string of security incidents targeting his Shiite party in recent months and warned that if bombings continue, “Lebanon will be on the edge of the abyss.”


Hezbollah is a key supporter of President Bashar al-Assad and has sent fighters across the border to Syria this year to bolster government forces, which have been battling a deadly anti-regime revolt since March 2011.


The Shiite party’s role in the Syria war comes amid the growing sectarian nature of the conflict between the Alawite-dominated Assad regime and mainly Sunni rebels.

There is no excuse for Hezbollah’s participation in the war in Syria.
