Hariri Slams More Killings in Syria, Says Observers Should Say the Truth
Former Premier Saad Hariri slammed the Syrian regime on Monday for killing more protestors despite the presence of observers seeking to implement an Arab deal endorsed by Syria.
“It’s unbelievable,” Hariri tweeted, adding that the Syrian regime said it wants reform and signed the Arab protocol but continued its deadly crackdown on protestors.
The deal calls for the withdrawal of the military from towns and residential districts, a halt to violence against civilians and the release of detainees.
The Assad regime thinks that signing the protocol gives it a “license to kill,” he said on twitter.
“It’s time for Arab League observers to say the truth, the full story and not like Bashar (Assad) regime wants it,” he tweeted.
Hariri also criticized Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem, saying he “was lying like he lied with his video tape he showed.”
When asked by one follower if he would one day visit Syria and meet with President Bashar Assad, he replied: “No I won't.”
Asked about the latest controversy that erupted over statements made by Defense Minister Fayez Ghosn on al-Qaida, Hariri said: “It's been 7 years talking about al-Qaida in Lebanon starting from Abou Adass it's all a big lie.”
A man named Ahmed Abu Adass has falsely claimed to be the suicide bomber in ex-Premier Rafik Hariri’s assassination on behalf of a fictitious fundamentalist group using the name “Victory and Jihad in Greater Syria.”
