Lebanese National Bloc: Syrian Army moving along the border

Saturday, April 05, 2008

BEIRUT: The National Bloc said Friday that information that the Syrian Army was moving along the Lebanese border and helping pro-Syrian Palestinian militants infiltrate the country was "an alarming indication and requires diplomatic and political measures on the domestic and international levels."
"Is a US warship sitting 100 kilometers off the Lebanese coast worth all the opposition's attention?" a statement from the party asked. "Is the amassing of three military battalions on the Syrian-Lebanese border a normal measure? The silence over these developments reaches the level of complicity, if nothing else," the statement added. It added that MP Michel Aoun's "defense" of Syrian President Bashar Assad was proof of Aoun's deep involvement with the Syrians. "Everything Assad says becomes mandatory to Aoun," the statement added. (The Daily Star-Lebanon)
