沙特阿拉伯海湾事务国务大臣萨巴汉尼11月4号星期六说,他得知的“确切情报”显示有人企图刺杀黎巴嫩总理哈里里。

萨巴汉尼告诉哈里里拥有的一家阿拉伯语电视台说,哈里里目前在利雅得。 萨巴汉尼说他得知有针对哈里里的安全威胁,沙特阿拉伯非常重视保障哈里里的安全。

哈里里星期六宣布辞职时抨击伊朗以及真主党在黎巴嫩和整个地区制造分歧。

哈里里还说目前黎巴嫩的政治气氛与2005年他的父亲、前黎巴嫩总理拉菲克.哈里里遇刺前几月的气氛类似。

Saudi Official Says He Has Confirmed Plot to Kill Hariri

Saudi Arabia's Gulf affairs minister said Saturday that he had "confirmed information" about a plot to kill Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri from the leader's personal security detail.

Thamer al-Sabhan told Future, an Arabic television station owned by Hariri, that the Lebanese leader was in Riyadh. Al-Sabhan added that he knew of "security threats to the prime minister, and the kingdom is keen on his safety."

Hariri announced his resignation Saturday, after delivering a blistering attack on Iran and its proxy militia, Hezbollah. The resignation followed consultations with Saudi Arabian leaders in Riyadh, and a meeting with Iran's top foreign policy adviser, Ali Akbar Velayati.

Lebanese President Michel Aoun indicated that Hariri's office had called him from outside Lebanon to relay the news of his resignation. Commentators on Saudi-owned al-Arabiya TV stressed that Hariri's resignation speech was made from Riyadh and that it had "regional implications."

In his speech, Hariri accused Iran and Hezbollah of creating discord in the country, as well as across the region.

He said that outside parties — alluding to Iran — that wished ill on Lebanon had sown sectarian strife among the Lebanese, gaining control of the levers of power and setting up a state within a state. He also accused Iran of meddling in the internal affairs of other Arab states, including Syria, Iraq, Bahrain and Yemen.

Hariri went on to claim the political climate inside Lebanon resembled the one that prevailed in the months before his father, the late Prime Minister Rafiq al-Hariri, was assassinated in February 2005, and that he sensed a "covert plot" against his own life. Arab and Lebanese media have long accused Hezbollah of killing the elder Hariri.
