As he stressed that Syria has been facing a terrorist assault, Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Meqdad said arming terrorist groups has been taking place through the Lebanese-Syrian border.
Talking to al-Manar channel on Wednesday, Meqdad urged “neighboring countries, including Arab states, not to overlook terrorism.”
“To our people in Lebanon we say do not permit those groups to practice terrorism through aids offered by some Lebanese,” Meqdad said adding that he did not mean the Lebanese government.
While answering if Syria has information about arms smuggling through Lebanon-Syria border, the Deputy FM said: “We have credible and accurate information in this issue. We know everything, as we know them by names”.
“We are facing a terrorist assault and arming the terrorist groups comes through Lebanon-Syria border.”
But he also warned: “whom who provoke hostility to Syria will inevitably lose.”
Commenting about accusations made by Saudi foreign minister that Syria has inflamed the latest unrest in Tripoli, Meqdad said: “this is absolutely far beyond from reality, he (Saud al-Faisal) knows well who is behind funding terrorists in Syria.”
He also reminded that the Saudi FM had previously, along with others, declared that they were supporting the opposition in Syria.
