LONDON: Al Arabiya network denied accusations made by Lebanese terror group Hezbollah in a statement issued on Thursday, which claimed that the network was peddling false information on the militia’s captagon and drug smuggling operations.
Responding to threats made by the group, Al Arabiya stressed that all accusations cited in the Hezbollah statement were false.
It also confirmed that all reports and investigations published by its various platforms are documented and supported by trusted sources, and confirmed by audio and video files.
They were also confirmed, Al Arabiya said, by arrest warrants issued against Hezbollah members and financiers by several governments in Latin America, the US and Europe.
Al Arabiya said it would carry on with its approach by adhering to the highest professional standards, relying on documented information in its investigations and news material.
The network pointed out that Hezbollah and its members are already blacklisted for drug trafficking, money laundering, smuggling, and illegal trade in many countries around the world.
