Syrian Foreign Ministry Statements are Fabricated by it and Lebanese Pawns
Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri noted on Friday that some members of the Lebanese government are seeking to drag Lebanon onto a path of terrorism through covering up the Syrian regime’s crimes.
He made his statements in light of the twin bomb attacks that took place in Damascus earlier on Friday and the Syrian Foreign Ministry’s statements that Lebanon had warned earlier this week that members of al-Qaida had infiltrated the country.
Hariri said via Twitter: “The Syrian Foreign Ministry’s statements are fabricated by it and some of its Lebanese pawns.”
In addition, he stated that the regime in Syria “is specialized in exporting terrorism.”
Asked if the bombings were a sign that the regime was targeting the Arab League observers, the former premier replied: “This is a great possibility.”
“The regime does not hesitate to commit the most heinous of crimes,” he stressed.
Arab League observers arrived in Syria on Thursday to monitor its implementation of a League initiative aimed at ending violence against anti-regime protesters.
Suicide bombers hit two security service bases in Damascus on Friday killing more than 30 people and casting a pall over the first day of work of an Arab observer mission intended to oversee an end to nine months of bloodshed.
The bombings, which officials blamed on al-Qaida, were the first attacks against Syria's powerful security services in the heart of the capital since the uprising began and overshadowed new protests against President Bashar al-Assad's regime.
