August 25, 2010 - Now Lebanon - As-Sharq al-Awsat: Indicting Hezbollah members threatens Lebanon

As-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper quoted a Hezbollah source on Wednesday as saying that a Special Tribunal for Lebanon’s (STL) indictment accusing Hezbollah of being involved in the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik threatens not only the cabinet, but the entire country.

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said in July that the STL is an Israeli project designed to target Hezbollah by stirring up sectarian strife in Lebanon.

The daily added that Hezbollah is not discussing the possibility of its ministers resigning from the cabinet.
