Hizbullah Denies Involvement in Gebran Tueni Assassination

and Hizbullah's intelligence department were behind the operation.
"Al-Arabiya's document on Hizbullah is fake and not everything published is a real document and you can tell that from the content," Hizbullah's State Minister for Administrative Development Mohammed Fneish told news hounds as he entered a cabinet session at the Grand Serail.
Later on Monday, Hizbullah issued an official statement denying "any involvement whatsoever" in Tueni's liquidation, saying it is "awaiting the judiciary's ruling in this case."
The party also slammed the comments of "some March 14 figures and websites" that were voiced after the airing of the report.
"The stances voiced by the March 14 forces on several issues are always based on fake documents and fabricated info," said the statement.
It accused the March 14 camp of taking advantage of the "baseless accusations fabricated by the Saudi network Al-Arabiya and attributed to Syrian opposition activists, including those related to the liquidation of MP Gebran Tueni."
