The scenario also includes the war against the party the possibility of issuing an international resolution of the UN Security Council under Chapter VII of the extradition of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon on the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri as part of a specific timeframe.
And are convinced the Iranian leadership that the "Party of God" as soon as the fall of the Assad regime, would be subjected to international pressure titles "Bulgaria's attack, which targeted Israeli soldiers and the assassination of Hariri," is that the timing of the war and regional and international circumstances do not seem clear.
