Hizbullah has evidence which implicates Israel in the car bombing that killed former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq Hariri in 2005 on Monday, Ma'an News Agency reported Sunday.

The Palestinian news agency was told by a Hizbullah source that the evidence, which has not yet been released, is "comprehensive, revealing, conclusive information."

Rafiq Hariri, who was killed alongside twenty others in Beirut, was the father of current Lebanese Prime Minister Sa'ad Hariri. It is widely accepted that the former prime minister was the target of assassins.

Last month, Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah criticized a UN tribunal investigating Hariri's assassination since 2007, amid reports that members of the organization will likely be implicated for the murder.


Nasrallah called into question the impartiality of the tribunal, stating that some of its members are connected to Israel.  The comments came in a prerecorded announcement aired on Lebanese television.

Nasrallah added that Hizbullah possesses proof that will exonerate its members from involvement in Hariri's assassination that it will reveal when the time comes.
