The Gulf Cooperation Council on Monday condemned Hezbollah's involvement in the Syria crisis, Lebanese Daily Star quoted the state-run Saudi Press Agency as reporting.

In a statement published by the Press Agency, the GCC urged the Lebanese government to “shoulder its responsibilities” over “Hezbollah’s behavior and its illegal and inhumane practices in Syria and the region.”

“The GCC strongly condemns Hezbollah’s blatant intervention in the crisis in Syria which caused the death of civilians," which has “revealed the nature of the party and its true goals that go beyond the borders of Lebanon and the Arab world.”

“Hezbollah’s illegal intervention and the horrific practices of its militias in the region will harm its interests in GCC countries,” said the statement, the Star reported.
