Future MP Khaled Daher has explicitly accused Hezbollah of masterminding a roadside explosion against an Army patrol in which two soldiers were killed and three wounded in the outskirts of Arsal last week, in order to drag the Army into the Syrian war.The militants detain at least 21 soldiers and policemen whom they want to swap for Islamic detainees in Roumieh prison. They were among 30 personnel captured last August when the militants overran the border town of Arsal, clashing with the Army for five straight days in the most serious spillover of the violence raging in Syria. Daher also blasted Army commander Gen. Jean Kahwagi, whom he accused of complicity with Hezbollah in persecuting the Sunni community in Tripoli, north Lebanon, in order to reach the presidency.
