Confirmed: Nasrallah lied to Ahmadinejad
Remember how I questioned
whether the rifle presented by Hezbullah chieftain Hassan Nasrallah to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad could have come from an IDF soldier in the Second Lebanon War? Well, all of you who got it right can pat yourselves on the back. Yedioth (apparently only on the Hebrew side - I can't find it on the English side) and Lebanon's Naharnet are now confirming that Nasrallah lied to Ahmadinejad
The mass-selling Yediot Aharonot said the gun, which Nasrallah presented to Ahmadinejad in person on his controversial two-day visit to Lebanon, was a type of weapon not been used by the Israeli military since the early 1970s.
The paper quoted a military spokesperson as saying the weapon was "most likely" a FNFAL 7.62 rifle that went out of use in 1974, meaning it could not have been taken from soldiers during Israel's more recent invasion of Lebanon.
A military spokesman contacted by AFP declined to comment on the report.
Liar, liar, pants on fire!
