Report: Mamlouk Sent Hizbullah New List of Assassination Targets

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

A top Syrian security official has recently sent Hizbullah a list of Lebanese political and military personalities targeted for assassination, the Kuwaiti al-Seyassah newspaper reported on Sunday.

The daily quoted a Gulf diplomat in Abu Dhabi as saying that the list, which includes 13 names, was sent by Maj. Gen. Ali Mamlouk, who has been charged by a Lebanese military court of involvement along with ex-Information Minister Michel Samaha in a terror plot to destabilize Lebanon.

Arrest warrants in absentia were issued on Monday against Mamlouk and his aide known only by his first name as Adnan.

A Gulf intelligence agency informed Lebanese security apparatuses several days ago about the list that was provided by a suspect arrested in the UAE, the diplomat said.

The Lebanese suspect struck a deal with UAE authorities to provide the names in return for his release and deportation to a country of his choice, he said.

The list reportedly includes the names of al-Mustaqbal lawmakers Ahmed Fatfat, Nuhad al-Mashnouq, Khaled al-Daher, Moeen al-Merehbi and former general prosecutor Saeed Mirza.

Other names on the list are MP Marwan Hamadeh, who was the target of an assassination attempt in 2004, Internal Security Forces chief Maj. Gen. Ashraf Rifi, Lebanese Forces chief Samir Geagea and opposition lawmaker Butros Harb.

Geagea escaped gunfire at his residence in Maarab last year while Harb was also the target of an assassination plot that was thwarted when the residents of a building where he has an office in Badaro saw suspects placing a bomb in the elevator.

Other well known March 14 opposition officials on the list are al-Mustaqbal movement chief ex-PM Saad Hariri, who is in Paris for over a year, and Phalange MP Sami Gemayel, who was reportedly warned by security forces on several occasions that he could be the target of an assassination attempt.

Two other army generals are on the list, al-Seyassah said, adding that they are tipped to succeed army chief Gen. Jean Qahwaji.

Late last year, reports said that Interior Minister Marwan Charbel received a list of 15 names targeted for assassination.

There you have it, Syrian, Iranian and HA democratic solutions for dealing with those that disagree with them. Deja vu, so shameful. What would it take for those folks to see the light if ever they can.

Highly unlikely to be true considering the source.

Thumb mckinl 10 February 2013, 10:18

One must wonder why Naharnet would repeat such reports. If there is anything Lebanon needs right now it is calm kool heads, not wild accusations.

Missing VINCENT 10 February 2013, 20:48

Highly unlikely! May be this is an Israeli plot, or may be the British have a finger in it, or, better yet, may be it was a Tibetan monk who conjured up this story. Wake up and smell the coffee. I guess the most beneficial result for arming the HA has been the systematic assassinations of Lebanese politicians. Where is the fight against the enemy? Who is your enemy? Is HA waiting for Iran to develop a nuke?

Thumb geha 10 February 2013, 09:18

and they say hizbushaitan is Lebanese!
its elements are Lebanese but since their orders come from the Syrian and Iranian regimes, then they are not Lebanese.
they are a militia of executors.
filthy traitors.
and you will have m8 guys discrediting the information because they just do not want to believe or they are full of hatred.

More "hearsay" reporting from the UAE and Naharnet. The GCC, the Zionists and M14 are pouring on the gossip prior to the elections.

It is clear that there is a full press effort to inundate Hezbollah with lies, innuendo and propaganda. Expect any kind of lie about Hezbollah now.

Missing greatpierro 10 February 2013, 09:34

Maybe there is no proof. But then again it is a reality that m14 leaders are systematically targeted as well as opponents to hizbullah from the choice community.

The reporting might be based on hearsay, but the crimes turn out to be real.
Do you really think that Syrian/Iranian intelligence agencies will formally post their list of target on their respective websites.

You are right. Those behind the extermination of M14 are Israelis. They want to strife a civil war by making people believe Hezbollah is killing. And when nobody will remain from M14 then the Zionists will be victorious. Time will come when you will know, whether you like it or not, that Hezbollah was executing all these killings and that all their suspects are effectively involved.

The majority of people assasinated since the 70's all the way to wissam hassan all happen to be anti-syrian regime politicians/figures....yet you still have these lost souls in Lebanon that doubt the authenticity of such reports even though we have solid proof right in front of us! What's it going to take to convince those in lebanon that the Syrian regime is evil?

You said it Ouwette.

The person who tries to assassinate your "hakeem" has exactly that in mind: to create a civil war.

If you play into their games and start one, they will look at you (LF) and Hizballah fighting and laugh at both of you while you kill each other.

Ouwette my family has a strong history with sheik Bashir, hakeem and the whole LF. What would massacres against Shiites solve? Regardless of their affiliations they are still lebanese. It's the bastard Syrian regime that needs to be dealt with. Whether people want to believe it or not a large number of Shiites are anti Hezbollah. We don't need another civil war khaye!

I don't agree with what Ouwette said but you are an ignorant fool. What did Hezbollah do when they made fun of nasrallah on lbc? What would happen if nasrallah were killed?

What are you guys thinking here a prime minister and even a president of the past was killed in Lebanon and nothing came out of it!!! now you think that the Lebanese will suddenly stand up and demand Hizballah pay its dues? Sheep will always look for greener pastures and move on. Sadly we the Lebanese are no different we will told this one is under investigation and away we go to the next hill. Bravo to all off you who keep following these useless leaders.

For those concerned about the possibility of Geagea being taken out, Forget it, No one is interested in some1 so insignificant.
HA Don't even acknowledge this flea. The only threat to Geagea life comes from within himself, thus making him someone of some importance.

Is it just a coincidence that the assassinations & bombing stopped only when M8 got what they wanted in Doha.
And only restarted upon Samaha case.
Or is it Israel seeking to push M14 to concede power to M8.
