"When we want to give gifts to the army we will do it, because the army is defending the border," Hizbullah MP Hassan Fadlallah told a news conference Friday.
He was referring to a statement by Defense Minister Elias Murr in which he said he would have liked to see Hizbullah offer the shipment to the Lebanese army which on Wednesday engaged in a shootout with Israeli troops on the tense Israel-Lebanon border.
Under a U.N. resolution that ended the July-Aug. war, Hizbullah is banned from rearming.(Naharnet-AP)
