Druze leader Walid Jumblat has said that Syria should provide arms to Palestinian refugees in the Yarmouk camp, which is eight kilometers from the center of Damascus, to continue an armed struggle with Israel.
"Let the Syrians open training camps there and launch a resistance movement along their border (with Israel) to liberate the Golan Heights," Jumblat said Sunday at a press conference in his hometown of Mukhtara.
Yarmouk is an unofficial camp and home to the largest Palestine refugee community in Syria.
The anti-Syrian politician said he wished all the best for Syrian opposition groups and figures that launched a "National Salvation Front" in Brussels last week aimed to oust President Bashar Assad's regime.
Jumblat said a democratic regime that respects freedoms and human rights in Syria would serve the Lebanese people's interests. "Lebanon cannot enjoy stability as long as its neighboring state is run by a dictatorial regime," he said.
