Head of Syrian National Council: Syrian Regime to Commit More Assassinations in Lebanon
[An Nahar] The head of the Syrian National Council Abdel Basset Sayda accused the Syrian regime of being behind the liquidation of Internal Security Forces Intelligence Bureau head Brigadier General Wissam al-Hasan, reported al-Joumhouria newspaper Monday.
He warned: "The Syrian regime will commit more liquidations in Leb in order to create unrest in the country and cover up its crimes in Syria."
"Hasan's liquidation will give the Lebanese and Syrian revolts a new push aimed at toppling the dictator and build two states produced from the will of their respective people," he told the daily.
He deemed the liquidation as a "purely political one", linking it to the August arrest of former Minister Michel Samaha on charges of forming a criminal gang aimed at carrying out attacks in Leb at Syria's behest.
Hasan played a major role in uncovering the plot.
