Assad: Hariri Was Dismissed, Did Not Resign

Syrian President Bachar Assad Tuesday said that Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri is not master of himself, adding that the latter did not resign, but rather was dismissed of his post.

“Political bickering in Lebanon is preventing any solution to the refugee crisis,” Assad was quoted as telling his visitors in Damascus.

The Syrian president ruled out a new military conflict in the region, saying that "the ones who really want to wage a war do not sound the drums beforehand."
