Hizbullah: We will Confront Indictment through All Means Except Escalation on the Ground

A political source from Hizbullah revealed that the party will prevent the implementation of indictment in the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri through "refusing to hand over any of its accused members or any accused from the opposition."

It told the daily Asharq al-Awsat Saturday: "Hizbullah and the opposition have several means to confront the indictment with political and constitutional methods through the institutions."

One of these options includes refraining from funding the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, which would confirm Lebanon's official backing down from its commitments.

The source stressed: "All options are possible expect escalation on the ground as we seek to avoid tensions because it is not in our favor."
