Lebanon's Junblat accuses Syria of instigating militia attack on Israel

In Beirut, the Lebanese Druze leader and parliamentarian Walid Junblat held Syria responsible for the missile attack on Israel from inside the Lebanese territories, stressing that it (Syria ) stands behind this operations.

He questioned on Thursday, looming to the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad without naming him "why he does not use these unidentified identity missiles in the Golan and dispatched them instead of that to the liberated south Lebanon and thereby the Lebanese should bear reactions with their political and economic dimensions."

On the other hand, the Lebanese parliamentarian and member of Junblat bloc in the Lebanese parliament Marwan Hamadeh called for the trial of the Syrian foreign minister Farouq al-Sharaa over what he considered misleading the UN investigation committee regarding the murder of Rafiq al-Hariri.

Hammadeh criticized Sharaa's statements on Wednesday before the meeting of the Ruling National Progressive Front in Syria in which he accused Hariri of lying when he said that Bashar al-Assad threatened him "because he (Hariri) was not able to justify accepting the extension of the term of office for the Lebanese President Emil Lahoud."

In the same context, the headquarters of the UN in Damascus received a petition signed by some 3 million Syrian demanding the UN secretary general Kofi Annan to reject the American pressures on the organization concerning the murder of Rafiq al-Hariri. The signatories expressed their rejection oir the two reports by the chairman of the UN investigation committee Detlev Mehlis, whose term of office expired.
