Interior Minister Marwan Charbel revealed that Prime Minister Najib Miqati will hold a meeting with top security officials on Wednesday to discuss information about assassination plots against personalities from the opposition coalition.

Charbel told al-Akhbar newspaper published on Tuesday that the officials will discuss “ways to guarantee protection” for some March 14 lawmakers and personalities after they urged security agencies for action.

The meeting will also tackle the security situation of the northern city of Tripoli, the minister said.

Charbel reiterated that he hasn't received from al-Mustaqbal MP Ammar Houri any list of names of 12 lawmakers from the bloc and three al-Mustaqbal movement officials, who have reportedly received death threats.

Houri had said that Charbel had handed the list to Miqati in November. But the premier’s press office later denied he had ever received the names of threatened officials.

The MP later condemned Miqati's denial, recounting the details of a meeting between a delegation from al-Mustaqbal movement and Charbel on November 16 during which it presented him with the list.

In fact FT and others you must be right. All the M14 assassinated leaders are not dead. they are hiding. it's a sionist conspiracy.

They don't need protection. They just need to have M8 accompany them everywhere. That way at least we can find out who hizb tz finds expendable.

Of course, Cherbel being an FPMer may complicate matters......

Lebfirst it sounds like a great plan, maybe both M8+M14 can finaly get together and spend some quality time, maybe go bowling or even stroll in the parks together loool its safer and could be better for the country. I can see them now having a nice pic-nick in the parks and playing crocket in el Da7yieh....
