Lebanese Parliament's majority leader Saad Hariri expected that he himself and Druze leader Walid Jumblatt would to be the next assassination targets after Pierre Gemayel's murder last week, local Naharnet news website reported on Wednesday.
Hariri made the remarks in an interview with the Egyptian Al- Ahram daily on Tuesday. He said that "the series of assassinations are ongoing and now it's the turn of two: Walid Jumblat and Saad Hariri."
Hariri, the son of slain ex-Premier Rafik Hariri, also reiterated that the Syrian intelligence was behind his father's murder in a massive suicide truck bombing on the Beirut seafront in February last year.
Rafik Hariri' death triggered a mass anti-Syrian waves and at last led to the withdrawal of Syrian military presence in the country.
A UN probe has implicated Syrian officials in the killing of Hariri, but Damascus denied any role in it.
Lebanon has been ravaged by a series of assassinations, murder attempts and bombings since October 2004, mainly targeting Anti- Syrian politicians, the latest of which was the killing of Industry Minister Pierre Gemayel on Nov. 21.
