US, Israel plotting to kill Nasrallah - report

Syrian newspaper says Saudi Arabia, Israel, and US seeking intelligence on whereabouts of Shiite leader

An attempt on the life of Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah was foiled by the Shiite organization, a Syrian weekly magazine reported on Saturday.


According to al-Madar, the intelligence services of Saudi Arabia, the United States and Israel sought to track secret Hizbullah bunkers in Lebanon as part of a plot to assassinate Nasrallah.


The magazine also pointed to Fatah strongman Mohammad Dahlan and former Saudi Ambassador to Washington Prince Bandar Bin-Sultan as accomplices to the plot.


The Hizbullah leader has been underground since last summer's war with Israel.


Israel destroyed Hizbullah's stronghold of Dahiyeh in Beirut during the war but failed to nail senior leaders of the Iranian-backed organization.
