Hizbullah dismissed the planned Israeli withdrawal from the border town of Ghajar as nothing more than a "trick," accusing the UN of complicity with Israel, AFP reported on Sunday.

According to the report, Hizbullah MP Mohammed Raad said, "The Israeli enemy wants to show that it has fully pulled out from the Lebanese territory," in a speech in southern Lebanon on Sunday.

He added, "This is maneuvering in complicity with the United Nations," AFP reported. "The Israeli withdrawal from the northern sector of Ghajar, placing it under the tutelage of the United Nations, preventing the Lebanese army from deploying and keeping civilian affairs in the hand of the Israeli enemy which occupies the southern sector of the village is not a pullout," Raad retorted.
