Hezbullah denies helping Assad

How unpopular is Bashar al-Assad? Unpopular enough that even Hezbullah is denying that it is helping him put down the uprising in his country.
"Hezbollah vehemently denies accusations by some Syrian opposition members that it is helping to put down the protests in Syria and asserts that these allegations are untrue,” the Shi'ite group said in a statement quoted by AFP.

The group claimed the accusations were politically motivated and aimed at enabling the West to interfere in Syria's internal affairs, AFP said.

“We are against such interference and favor reform and stability that would enable the Syrian people to prosper and move forward,” Hezbollah said in the statement.
