A Syrian civil servant on Friday denied Israeli accusations that Syria was involved in the Tel Aviv suicide bombing that wounded 20 people. Fayez Sayegh, director-general of the state-run television and radio, told The Associated Press that Syria "had nothing to do with the operation." Sayegh's views, like those of all executives of state media, reflect Syrian government thinking. He said Israel was trying to link the attack to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's visit to Syria, which began Thursday. "Israel wants to accuse both Syria and Iran, due to Iran's clear stand against the Zionist entity and the Syrian stand against continued Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people," Sayegh said.
