Former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri on Thursday accused the Hezbollah terror organization of fighting alongside President Bashar Assad’s forces in Syria, Lebanon's Daily Star reported.

According to the paper, citing a statement released by his media office, Hariri affirmed: “The Lebanese - Shiites, Sunnis and Christians - know very well, even from the mouths of senior Hezbollah officials, the nature of [the party’s] involvement in what it alleged to be ‘a jihadi duty’ alongside the machine of killings, repression, crackdown and subjugation facing the Syrian people.”

“There is no longer anything that can help to cover up this clear crime committed by Hezbollah first against Lebanon before Syria," Hariri proclaimed.

Lebanon's former PM reportedly was responding to Hezbollah deputy leader Sheikh Naim Qassem's accusation that Hariri's Future Movement was sending money and arms to anti-regime Syrian rebels.
