Hizbullah denied on Friday that it had any intentions to join the Lebanese aid flotilla being organized to set sail for Gaza. 

The terror group released a statement denying any involvement in the Lebanese flotilla for fear of Israeli reprisals should the ships be linked to a terrorist organization.

"Hizbullah confirms that it decided from the very beginning to stay away from this humanitarian act in terms of organization, logistic support and participation so as not to give the Israeli enemy any pretext to attack the participants," the statement was quoted as saying by AFP.
