A pro-Syria Lebanese Member of Parliament (MP) accused France of secretly sending troops to Syria.

The Lebanese Baathist  MP Asem Konsoa claimed that the Syrian regime forces arrested 18 French officers and 100 paratroopers, along with 70 Lebanese for joining and fighting within the ranks of the protesters in the restless city of Homs.

Konsoa added that such a "scandal" might threaten the political future of the French President Nicolas Sarkozy. The MP vowed to divulge more information kept under wraps about the Lebanese "conspirators."

The Lebanese MP anticipates that the armed conflict will cease within a month's time, claiming the Syrian army is increasingly imposing its control on the Baba Amr neighbourhood in Homs.
