Hezbollah said on Monday it had shot down an “Israeli drone” as it crossed the border with Lebanon, a week after a confrontation between the arch-foes.
There is no evidence that the leadership of the Iran-backed Shi'ite Muslim group Hizbollah, or the Syrian government, were involved in the 2005 bombing that killed former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Al Hariri, a judge said on Tuesday.
Salim Jamil Ayyash was found guilty in August of homicide and committing a terrorist act over the deaths of Hariri and 21 others in the attack on Beirut's waterfront.
Ten others were wounded in the late afternoon incident in the coastal town of Khalde after Hizbollah backers strung banners and flags on electricity poles to mark the religious event of Ashura, the source said.
The biggest winner turned out to be the nationalist Christian Lebanese Forces party led by Samir Geagea, one of the harshest critics of Hizbollah. Another big winner is Druze leader Walid Joumblatt whose group won all eight seats they were running for.
