Government officials reacted with skepticism Friday to Syria's commitment to stop the flow of weapons to Hizbullah. "Israel does not think that Syria during the last conflict - both in helping Hizbullah by financing and arming them directly and the declarations during the conflict - and in its aftermath, has shown any reason to be a reliable force," government spokeswoman Miri Eisen said. "Syria continues to be a safe haven for terrorism." Syrian President Bashar Assad had committed in a meeting with UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan to increase security along the Lebanon-Syria border and establish joint patrols with the Lebanese army.
