"We're not ashamed of getting Israel's support in a previous stage against the Syrians when they were in Lebanon. We believe that supporting Lebanon is the most important thing,"Gemayel said in a press conference on Sunday September 6.

Hezbollah's statement added: "We expected that these judicial authorities would have requested the documents and the data which Gen. Sayyed had revealed in his last press conference in order to seek truth and justice."

Sayyed on Sunday held a press conference saying that Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri's team was behind false witnesses.
