Russia on Friday rejected an Israeli claim that the Hizbullah had used Russian-made rockets that had been sold to Syria in its attacks on Israel. "There are not and cannot be any grounds for this," Foreign Ministry spokesman Mikhail Kamynin said in a statement. "The system we have created for control of weapons exports is one of the strictest and most reliable," he said, adding that the system would not allow Russian weapons to reach unintended recipients. Earlier this week, Maj. Gen. Aharon Zeevi-Farkash, the head of army intelligence,was quoted in a Hebrew-language daily as saying that Hezbollah had used Russian-made rocket-propelled grenades, which Syria had purchased, in two recent cross-border attacks. Kamynin reiterated Russia's commitment to promoting Israel's security.
