France has recently warned Israel not to harm Hizbullah members participating in a convention of Lebanese groups being held near Paris these days.


The Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Seyassah reported Saturday that the French government told Israel an attempt to harm any of the Hizbullah delegates would hinder relations between the countries.


According to the report, the warning was issued after French intelligence received information saying Mossad was planning to attack Hizbullah
and Amal (Lebanese Resistance Detachments) representatives at the conference.


Al-Seyassah said the information, received from both Israel and Jordan, said Mossad was planning to kidnap members of the Shiite group with the aim of using them as bargaining chips in future negotiations for the release of Israeli soldiers Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser, who have been held captive by Hizbullah since July 2006.


More than 400 French officers are securing the venue, the report said.
