Saudi Arabia’s Vice Minister of Defense, Prince Khalid bin Salman, said on Sunday that the late Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri had been assassinated by Iranian militia.

The deputy defense minister accused, in a series of tweets, Iranian militia of assassinating Hariri with the aim of destroying his “Renaissance project.”

“Hariri’s vision and national project that aspires to achieve stability, prosperity and coexistence will remain despite his departure and will live on to combat the plans of sectarian militias who do not believe in the homeland or the dignity of the citizens,” he added.

 Friday marked 15 years since Hariri was killed in an explosion in Lebanon’s capital Beirut.
