Syria denies reports on Lebanon hit list
Syria harshly denounced Saturday allegations raised by AFP claiming that Syria threatened Lebanon's opposition figures. It also condemned the "abricated accusations" that Syria had prepared an "assassination hit list" targeting Lebanese leaders.
“These allegations and fabrications are just a cheap bid to affect the Lebanese elections and entreat voters as well as to instigate against Syria,” Director of Foreign Media Department Nizar Maihoub said, according to SANA.
Maihoub indicated that "some Lebanese has been crossing all limits by their electoral heterodoxies including limits of morals, politeness, and tact”. “Syria, which is far above threatening, assassination and bombing practices as well condemns all those acts, expresses disgust over some uncivilized and irresponsible manners used by some Lebanese which are going along with some foreign sides that declare publicly hostility towards Syria shoving Syria’s great name just for exploiting voters”.
He pointed out that Syria meets majority of Lebanese in denouncing French and US interventions in the Lebanese internal affairs and renews calls for everyone to let the Lebanese people to organize their internal home within the framework of sovereignty and independence.
