Saudi firms backed by billionaires in probe have $2bn debt
The leader of Lebanese Shi'ite group Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, said on Sunday that Saudi Arabia had forced Lebanon's Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri to resign, and called for calm and patience in Lebanon. "The resignation of al-Hariri and his comments on Iran are a wake-up call to the worldwide community to act against Iran, which is trying to turn Syria into a second Lebanon".
On Saturday, the Saudi-funded Al Arabiya television said a plot to assassinate Hariri had been foiled.
"Over the past decades, Hezbollah has used its weapons against the Lebanese and Syrians to impose a fait accompli in Lebanon", he said, reiterating his rejection of using Lebanon as a platform "to threaten the security of the region".
The daily did not provide any further details on the alleged assassination attempt.
"We are living in a climate similar to the atmosphere that prevailed before the assassination of martyr Rafik al-Hariri", his father, who was killed in a auto bomb incident in 2005 that many believe Hezbollah was involved in".
Asharq al-Awsat reported Hariri was caught off guard by the assassination attempt, as he had been seeking a modus vivendi with Hezbollah. Hariri allies in Lebanon have denied suggestions that he had been detained.
On Saturday, Hariri surprisingly resigned from his post as prime minister in a televised address from Saudi Arabia. "Iran very much wants to bring chaos and destruction to the Arab world, but the evil it is sowing will return to it and attack it like a boomerang", he said.
Former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri gives a speech during the opening ceremony of the second "Kuwait Financial Forum" in Kuwait City on 31 October 2010.
