Prime Minister Saad Hariri traveled to Mecca on Tuesday to perform the Omra and spend the Eid al-Fitr holidays with his family.
On Wednesday, Hariri extended greetings to the Lebanese on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr and expressed regret for not welcoming well-wishers for being in Mecca.
Meanwhile, political circles continued to praise Hariri's latest statement on wrongly accusing Syria of involvement in his father's Feb. 205 assassination.
