Egyptian opposition leader Ayman Nour says he will be leaving Lebanon, where he currently resides, after receiving concrete information of "an assassination attempt on his life".

Nour who intends to go to Turkey before eventually making his way to Europe in a statement said, his departure from Lebanon "was not at the request of the Lebanese state or any political party," stressing that he still enjoys a close relationship with all political parties in Lebanon.

It added that "a senior official at the Lebanese army intelligence names Colonel Joseph Ghantous has informed him of receiving confirmed intelligence of a scheme aimed at his life in Lebanon, and asked him to be cautious."

The Egyptian opposition leader has debunked reports by Egyptian newspapers claiming he was leaving Lebanon after the Lebanese authorities refused to renew his residency.

Nour pointed out that some Lebanese actors confirmed to him that Egyptian President Abdul Fattah El-Sisi has personally put pressure on the Lebanese authorities to limit his movement.
