Report: Hezbollah denies aiding Assad crackdown on dissent

Hezbollah on Thursday denied recent allegations that it is helping the Syrian regime crack down on nation wide protests plaguing the country since March, AFP reported.
“Hezbollah vehemently denies accusations by some Syrian opposition members that it is helping to put down the protests in Syria and asserts that these allegations are untrue,” the Shi'ite group said in a statement quoted by AFP.
The group claimed the accusations were politically motivated and aimed at enabling the West to interfere in Syria's internal affairs, AFP said.
