Publisher Description

Saudi Arabia and Syria, major political players in Lebanon, were reported on Monday to have drafted a five-point plan to break the Lebanese deadlock over the UN-appointed Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL), which is threatening to plunge the country into renewed sectarian strife. Among other things, the reported plan basically calls for Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri to absolve Hizbullah of involvement in the 2005 assassination of his father, former Prime Minister Rafik al-Hariri, the leftist newspaper AS SAFIR, which is to close the powerful Shiite Hizbullah group, reported on Monday. It said that the plan is expected to be made public to rival Lebanese factions shortly after the Muslim Eid al-Adha holiday, which begins on Tuesday. Quoting unnamed political sources, the paper said that both Hariri and Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah have been informed of the details of the plan.
