Activist says Hezbollah involved in “killing” Syrian protestors

An activist said on Friday that Lebanon’s Shia group Hezbollah was involved in the “killing of” Syrian anti-regime protectors.

Wahid Saqr, the Secretary General of the “Coalition of Youths of the Free Syrian Revolution,” told Al-Arabiya television that he has “documents that prove Hezbollah’s involvement in Syria’s events.”

“[Hezbollah Secretary General] Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah is scared of the fall of the Syrian regime, because the latter has turned Syria into an Iranian protectorate,” Saqr added.

In a reference to Hezbollah, he also said that Syria “will not discuss with militias, but with the Lebanese state after the ruling regime collapses.”

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s troops have cracked down on protests against almost five decades of Baath rule which broke out mid-March, killing over 2,000 people and triggering a torrent of international condemnation.

Nasrallah on Friday called for a "peaceful resolution" in crisis-hit Syria, warning of regional fallout.
