Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah reiterated Friday Hezbollah’s full support to the Yemeni people in the face of the barbaric Saudi-US aggression on Yemen, reassuring that even if it took some time, the Yemenis will eventually triumph due to their courage and steadfastness.
In a statement Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah delivered in a ceremony held in Sayyed Al-Shuhadaa complex in solidarity with Yemen, his eminence reassured that “it is our humanitarian, moral, and religious duty to take this stance and the whole nation must take a similar stance, because we will be asked about this by Allah.
In response to Nasrallah threat to Saudi Arabia, ex-PM Saad Hariri accused Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah of “falsification and deception” regarding the Yemeni conflict, noting that Hizbullah’s Yemen rhetoric is “imported from Iran” and does not serve Lebanon’s interest.
“Following in the footsteps of (Iran’s supreme leader) Sayyed Ali Khamenei, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah has excelled in falsification, deception and the shows of intimidation and sectarian mobilization,” said Hariri via Twitter, only minutes after Nasrallah launched scathing tirades against Saudi Arabia over its Arab-backed airstrikes in Yemen.
“What we heard was a chorus of historical fabrications, evocation of the past’s grudges and a blatant manifestation of hatred against Saudi Arabia, its founder and its leadership,” said Hariri.
“Insulting the late King Abdul Aziz will put the insulters in the line of fire, from their biggest authority in Tehran to the smallest one in Dahieh,” he added.
In a televised speech earlier on Friday, Nasrallah launched a vehement attack against Saudi Arabia over its Yemen operation, accusing it of being the source of “takfiri ideology” in the world.
He also criticized the late King Abdul Aziz al-Saud, the founder of the kingdom. “After the founding king seized control of Hijaz, his Wahhabi followers — inspired by their culture — demolished all historic artifacts that have to do with the Prophet in April 1926,” said Nasrallah.
But Hariri stressed that “political escalation” will not manage to “distort the image, role or reputation of Saudi Arabia.”
“The scene that Hizbullah is presenting is imported from Iran and has nothing to do with Lebanon’s interest,” Hariri warned.
Sayyed Nasrallah assured that the only outcome from the war on Yemen will be the defeat of the invaders, and expressed gratitude to the Pakistani Parliament for preventing the Pakistani Army from fighting in Yemen.
Moreover, he called upon Pakistan and Egypt to put an end to the destruction of an Arab and Islamic country, and demanded the intervention of all the Arab and Islamic countries to stop this war and save Yemen from this intended catastrophe.
