Syrian activist Othman al-Homsi on Friday accused the son of a Hezbollah official of “smuggling weapons” into Syria.
“We have pictures that prove that the son of Hezbollah official Mohammad Yazbeck is smuggling arms into Syria,” Homsi told Al-Jazeera television.
He denied that Syrian pro-democracy protestors are receiving weapons from supporters in Lebanon, but said instead that “Yazbeck’s son is smuggling arms on the eastern border [with Syria].”
“I defy [anyone] to prove that [we] are receiving arms from Lebanon.”
Lebanon’s political scene is split between supporters of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, led by Hezbollah, and a pro-Western camp headed by Saad Hariri.
According to the UN, the Syrian regime's crackdown on protests has killed more than 3,000 people. Thousands have fled to Lebanon.
