Lebanese Druze leader condemns Syria for ploting rocket attack on Israel
font size    

A Lebanese Druze leader condemned Syria for plotting a rocket attack from Lebanon on northern Israel this week.

At a press conference on Thursday, Walid Jumblatt, president of the Lebanese Progressive Socialist Party, said the Syrian government had sent several lethal messages before the holiday. The first one was firing rockets from Lebanese territory into Israel and it was answered by Israeli air raids. He said Syria should have fired these rockets into the occupied Golan Heights.

Jumblatt said that Lebanon condemns the rocket attack and emphasized the importance of ending Palestinian guerrilla presence outside refugee camps.

In the Tuesday rocket attack, seven rockets landed in northern Israel, leaving five Israelis injured and a residential area heavily damaged.

Israeli warplanes blasted in the wee hours Wednesday one of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command's bases, 20 km south of Beirut, wounding two guerrillas.
