BEIRUT: Former Minister Wiam Wahhab, head of the Arab Tawheed Party, accused Tuesday a member of MP Walid Jumblatt’s Progressive Socialist Party of plotting to assassinate him in Syria. He said a non-Lebanese man, holding a forged Lebanese identity endorsed by the Interior Ministry, had been assigned to open fire on his convoy during his visit to the mainly Druze Syrian city of Souwaida. In an interview with Al-Manar television, Wahhab, a staunch supporter of embattled Syrian President Bashar Assad, said the would-be assassin had two choices: Either to shoot him directly or to open fire on his convoy. He added that the man allegedly accused of plotting to kill him belonged to the PSP. “But this does not mean that the PSP is involved,” Wahhab said. “I fear that the [PSP] has been infiltrated in order to stir up strife between me and the party,” he added.
