Lebanon: Hezbollah accuses Riyadh, you have caused the crisis

(ANSAMed) – BEIRUT, NOVEMBER 11 – The leader of the pro-Iranian Lebanese Hezbollah, Hasan Nasrallah, today accused Saudi Arabia of causing the diplomatic and trade crisis between Beirut and Riyadh, stating that the Saudi reaction to the minister’s statements of the Lebanese information George Qordahi was “very exaggerated”. During a televised interview aired in October, Qordahi publicly defended the Yemeni Huthi insurgents, close to Iran, accusing Saudi Arabia of conducting an aggression against the Yemeni people. Riyadh has been leading a military campaign against the Huthi uprising in Yemen since 2015 in the broader context of the rivalry between Iran and Saudi Arabia. In recent days, Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal ben Farhan had stated that the problem goes far beyond the statements of Minister Qordahi. (ANSAMed).
