‘Assassination plot 100% US fabrication’

An Algerian newspaper says that Tehran’s involvement in a terror plot to assassinate the Saudi envoy is a scenario 100 percent fabricated by the US government.

The Algerian Al-Mustaqbal Al-Arabi newspaper said the Saudi scenario is similar to the allegation that the former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was developing weapons of mass destruction, which was used as the pretext for the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.

The editorial added that the world is well-aware that leveling baseless allegations against different countries is a US trait.

The article added that the motive behind this US-fabricated scenario is creating a rift between Shia and Sunni Muslims on the one hand and alienating Syria, the Lebanese Hezbollah Resistance Movement, and the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas from Iran as well as ultimately distancing Saudi Arabia from the wave of Islamic Awakening in the region.

Early in October, the US Justice Department accused Iran of orchestrating a plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian Ambassador to Washington Abdel al-Jubeir, with the help of a suspected member of a Mexican drug cartel, Mansour Arabsiar.

Iran has categorically denied Washington’s allegation, saying the plot aims to divert world attention from the growing anti-Wall Street movement in the United States.
