The state-run Syrian Arab News Agency reported a day earlier that Lebanese military forces seized weapons from Libya bound for Syrian rebels.
The military intercepted a ship in the Mediterranean Sea and found heavy and light weapons aboard, Lebanon's National News Agency reported. Ten crew members and the vessel's agent were arrested after the inspection in Salaata port, north of Beirut.
"For over a year, we heard that the Libyan rebels were planning to send us a shipment of weapons for our fight against the daily slaughter and the massacres committed against our people, but it was all rumors," Ahmed said. "We have been asking for weapons to protect our civilians, over and over, but we haven't received any support, whatsoever."
