BEIRUT (AP) – The Lebanese militant group Hezbollah has condemned recent comments by a senior U.N. envoy in which he criticized the organization for providing support to Palestinian fighters in Gaza from Egypt.

Saturday’s statement by Hezbollah accused Terje Roed-Larsen of supporting Israel and said his position provided cover for Israeli “criminal practices.”

Roed-Larsen is the U.N. chief’s envoy dealing with implementation of a 2004 Security Council resolution that includes demands for Hezbollah’s disarmament.

Larsen on Thursday criticized Hezbollah’s admission that it supported fighters in Gaza from Egypt and said there is growing concern Hezbollah has engaged in militant activities beyond Lebanese territory.
