Yet he says he cannot prove it!? What kind of irresponsibility is this? Someone of his stature making conjecture to International media? Why does he say anything if he is not sure, especially in a sensitive time like this? Tell me there is not something going on. It seems they are almost desperate to find something and they will get anyone or look for anything to do it with. In the end they will do what they want anyway..why wait for our final approval!

The escalation of violence in the Middle East has analysts speculating over those responsible behind the scenes. Detlev Mehlis, former UN inspector, told Deutsche Welle that Iran and Syria are definitely playing a role.

Detlev Mehlis, a senior public prosecutor in Berlin is a former investigator with the United Nations and closely involved in the probe after the assassination of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri.

Very familiar with the dynamics and power politics of the region, Mehlis is convinced that Syria and Iran are behind the recent outbreak of violence between Israel and Lebanon.

While he says he has no proof, he insists that the current events would not be happening without explicit approval from Syria, especially since the weapons being used by Hezbollah in all likelihood came through Syria.
