Aoun: Hizbullah Does Not Use Arms inside Lebanon

President Michel Aoun has announced that Hizbullah does not use its controversial arsenal of arms inside Lebanon.

“There are political rather than security concerns, because everyone knows that Hizbullah does not use its arms inside Lebanon, and up until now, this has only happened once, when the then Lebanese government took measures against the party,” Aoun said in an interview with RT television, referring to the May 2008 clashes.

Separately, the president ruled out an imminent Israeli war on Lebanon.

“After the July 2006 war, I believe that Israel will not repeat its aggression against Lebanon, because it will not be able to break the Lebanese front,” Aoun said.
