BEIRUT: Abdul-Halim Khaddam, a previous Syrian VP and outside pastor who was one of the most compelling figures in the nation before surrendering in 2005 to France, has passed on of a coronary failure in Paris, his child said Wednesday. He was 87.
Jihad Khaddam told The Associated Press his dad had been healthy, and that the cardiovascular failure occurred after he fell on his back three days prior. He kicked the bucket Tuesday in his Paris home.

“Rafik Hariri was obviously compromised. A few times. I used to hear the dangers and send messages to Hariri that he should leave Lebanon,” Khaddam said in a meeting after he moved to France. “There was demonstrate hatred for against the man.”
Khaddam himself got away from two death endeavors, the first in the Syrian capital, Damascus, in 1976, in which he was daintily injured when shooters started shooting at his vehicle.

Both death endeavors were accused on Palestinian fear engineer Abu Nidal’s Fatah Revolutionary Council.
After he left Syria, Khaddam was accused of treachery and removed from the Baath party.
