Hariri Resigned after Failing to Carry Out Saudi Plots: Lebanese Analyst
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A senior political analyst said the Riyadh regime has forced Lebanon’s Prime Minister Saad Hariri to resign after he failed to carry out the kingdom’s seditious plots in Lebanon.
Speaking to the Tasnim News Agency, Abdo al-Laqqis said Hariri, in fact, did not resign but the Saudi government ousted him.
His resignation was a decision taken by Riyadh because the Saudi regime saw him inefficient to implement its seditious plots, the analyst said.
He further said that one of the main reasons behind the resignation is that Riyadh was dissatisfied with the presence of Hezbollah Resistance Movement in Hariri’s administration.
Hariri resigned on Saturday, saying in a televised broadcast he sensed a plot to target his life.
His resignation statement was made and broadcast from the Saudi capital Riyadh.
Reports say the Saudi regime had ordered Hariri to resign in an effort to destabilize Lebanon.
Saad Hariri is the son of former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq Hariri, who was assassinated in 2005. Hariri has also been the leader of the Future Movement party since 2005.
He became prime minister in 2016 after serving another term between November 2009 and June 2011.
