A member of the Syrian opposition has accused Damascus and its allies Iran and Hezbollah of a December 27 bomb attack, Lebanese newspaper The Daily Star reported Saturday.

The car bomb killed six people, including Mohammad Shatah, a leading critic of Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime.

"The murderers... are the same ones that kill and continue to kill Syrians in Qusayr, Qalamoun, Ghouta, Aleppo, Homs and Idlib," said the Syrian National Council (SNC), the largest member of the umbrella National Coalition opposition grouping.

"They are undoubtedly the alliance between the Iranian and Syrian regimes and their agents in Lebanon led by the sectarian and fanatical militia Hezbollah," the SNC said in a statement issued overnight.
