Syrian FM says assassination destroyed all hopes of peace

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem on Thursday said that Syria will "prove beyond any doubt" who is responsible for the assassination of Hizbullah arch-terrorist and operations officer Imad Mughniyeh in Damascus. Muallem said that Syria is conducting an investigation and that "we hope to near the results soon." He also said that the assassination has destroyed "all hopes to revive the peace process" between Israel and Syria. "Whoever seeks peace does not act in terror. Whoever seeks peace does not place a siege on the Gaza Strip while almost a million and a half Palestinians are struggling for their lives."
