Syrian parliamentarian Muhie al-Din Habboush underlined in a statement delivered among a great applause of audience that "the whole world knows that assassinating Lebanese ex- Premiere Rafik al-Hariri means assassinating Syria," noting, "we want the truth but not at the expense of our people's dignity."
