Hizballah has been transporting rockets and heavy weaponry to Palestinian camps in south Lebanon just a few miles from the Israeli border, according to Lebanese officials. The office of Lebanese Prime Minister Faud Siniora sent a letter last week to Abbas Zakir, the PA’s most senior representative in Lebanon, outlining the Hizballah weapons transfers into Palestinian camps.
A senior Lebanese official said Hizballah started building a new set of bunker systems, this time in Palestinian camps.
“The Lebanese Army doesn’t have the authority to patrol inside the camps,” said the official.
“Hizballah knows it is safe there to rebuild their war bunkers, and they began doing so with Iranian help.”
Deep divisions are emerging in Lebanon’s political elite as anti-Syrian politicians accused the Damascus-backed Hizballah of smuggling in more arms in defiance of UN disarmament demands.
