On the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri,a Syrian source quoted Assad as saying that there were no evidence of Syria's involvement in the operation. "Seven months after the assassination of Hariri, there is no evidence of Syria's involvement, therefore the plot failed to reach its objectives", the source was quoted by Kuna.
