On Thursday, Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of the Lebanese movement Hezbollah, delivered a speech to commemorate the 17th anniversary of Israel’s withdrawal from southern Lebanon. Nasrallah lashed out at Saudi Arabia and acused it of supporting terrorist groups.
According to Nasrallah, Riyadh’s invasion to Yemen and the backing of ISIS are “state terrorism”.
“The war initiated by Saudi Arabia in Yemen is a real state terror. IS was created by Saudi Arabia and is financed by Saudis,” Hezbollah Secretary General said.
The Lebanese Shia movement’s leader also noticed that Saudia Arabia failed to fulfill all its goals in the region by creating armies of radical jihadists.
That’s why, as Nasrallah believes, Riyadh needs the U.S. support to maintain its positions and ready to pay for it in order to fight Iran and its allies.
To be reminded is that on May 20, the U.S. and Saudi Arabia reached an arms deal worth of $350 billion over 10 years.
