Hizbullah is still armed because Syria is providing the Shi'ite guerrillas with weapons after the recent war in Lebanon, Israel's ambassador to Spain said Wednesday. "We have evidence that Hizbullah has received more weapons from Syria," Victor Harel said in a breakfast meeting with political analysts and journalists in Madrid. He said that since an August 14 cease-fire went into effect, apart from supporting Hizbullah, Syria had continued to meddle in Lebanese affairs and tried to undermine the country's pro-Western prime minister. "We don't trust Hizbullah. They continue to be armed in order to achieve their dream, which is the disappearance of the Zionist identity," Harel added.
