Akkar MP Khaled Daher said Tuesday Salafist Sheikh Ahmad al-Assir, arrested over the weekend on the charge of murdering Lebanese soldiers, was the victim of a "malicious conspiracy".The anti-Hezbollah MP appeared to be referring to a conspiracy theory that party members disguised as pro-Assir militants attacked an Army post to instigate the June 2013 Sidon battle.Assir, who was arrested by General Security agents at Beirut airport Saturday, is wanted for sparking the battle with the Army in the Abra neighborhood of Sidon in June 2013, in which 18 soldiers and around 40 militants were killed. Daher was believed to have been on Samaha's hit list.
