Lebanese Defense Minister warns Palestinians

August 21, 2006 04:45

Lebanon's defense minister said he was certain Hizbullah would not break the cease-fire but warned rogue Palestinian groups of harsh measures and a traitor's fate if they incited IDF retaliation by launching rockets into Israel. Also, Prime Minister Fuad Saniora, a Sunni Muslim, toured the devastated Hizbullah stronghold in Shiite south Beirut on Sunday and decried Israeli airstrikes there as "crimes against humanity." Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri, a Shiite and Hizbullah backer, stood at the prime minister's side and said they spoke with one voice.
