After doubts that an assassination plot could be planned against him, Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat pointed the finger at the Syrian regime saying it is the “primary suspect” behind such a plot, As Safir daily reported Thursday.
Jumblat said he believes that the “biggest winner who will benefit from my assassination is the Syrian regime which has grown stronger after the field developments on the battlefront in Syria,” he told the daily.
“In compliance with the security advice, I am residing most of the time at Moukhtara. If it was not for a minor surgery that I had to take in one of my eyes, I would not have come to my residence in Clemenceau in such circumstances,” he went on to say.
The MP revealed that a while ago some “serious official security agencies” have warned him to take precautions which compelled him to limit his movement. He asserted that “Hizbullah has also advised me to take the side of caution.”
