Barak: Political developments in Lebanon a triumph for Hizbullah

Recent political developments in Lebanon are a triumph for Hizbullah, Defense Minister Ehud Barak told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Monday morning. In talks with other Lebanese factions in Doha in May, the Shi'ite group gained veto power over government decisions and a third of the spots in the cabinet. The talks came after dozens of people were killed in clashes between Hizbullah and their opponents.
