WASHINGTON, Aug 3, 2006 (AFP) – The US Senate on Thursday passed a resolution demanding Syria and Iran halt their aid to the Hezbollah militant group, and called for a cessation of hostilities in Lebanon.

The non-binding resolution called on Tehran and Damascus to “end all material and logistical support for Hezbollah,” and urged the two countries to “use their significant influence over Hezbollah to disarm the group.”

The measure, approved by a voice vote, called the hostilities between Hezbollah and Israel “a threat to the peace and security of the peoples of Israel and Lebanon,” and called for an end to the fighting.
