BEIRUT: Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt slammed reports of cooperation between Syrian opposition groups and Israel.

“Although we still support the Syrian revolution but we refuse calling for help from Israel,” Jumbaltt said in his weekly column to PSP-affiliated Al-Anbaa website.

“This is a very dangerous issue and contradicts the historic path of Syria, which is known for its patriotism and Arabism,” he said. “This could also obstruct the possibility of having a diverse Syria and could push for the division of the country, as happened during the Lebanese Civil War.”

The PSP leader called on the Syrian National Coalition to take a decisive stance against such “dangerous developments” that could :damage the revolution and tarnish its endeavors.
