The hidden Hizbullah arms cache in southern Lebanon that exploded in July contained chemical weapons, and three Hizbullah terrorists died as a result of the toxins, in addition to eight other terrorists killed by the blast, the Kuwaiti newspaper Alseyassah Kuwait said on Thursday. Citing an unnamed European official, the Kuwaiti report claimed that Hizbullah had been stocking up on chemical arms since last December. Furthermore, Alseyassah Kuwait said Iran recently sent Hizbullah new types of chemical weapons and protective equipment, as well as thousands of gas masks, via Syrian airports. The report could not be independently confirmed by The Jerusalem Post.
