Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah said that “Saudi Arabia has asked Israel to strike Lebanon,” speaking in a televised speech from Beirut, Friday.

He added that Saudi Arabia is “ready to offer tens of billions of dollars for this purpose.”

Nasrallah went on to claim that rumours of former Lebanese Prime Minister being on house arrest in Saudi Arabia are “a certainty.”

“[Saad al-Harir] was forced to resign, read a statement that they wrote, and then the Prime Minister of Lebanon is held on house arrest and prevented from returning [to his country,” Nasrallah stated.

He also noted that “Over the past few years, the Yemenis have become highly capable of manufacturing rockets,” adding that “hey are producing unmanned aircrafts, and will include these aircrafts in the options to consider using in the war.”

Last Saturday, Hariri announced his resignation on Saturday in an unexpected declaration made from Saudi Arabia, citing an alleged plot to assassinate him. On Thursday, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait urged their citizens to stay out of Lebanon.

SOT, Hassan Nasrallah, Hezbollah Secretary General (Arabic): “Over the past few years, the Yemenis have become highly capable of manufacturing rockets. When Abdelmalek al-Houthi, this courageous, honourable leader, says that they are producing unmanned aircrafts, and will include these aircrafts in the options to consider using in the war, they don’t believe it. They belittle him saying ‘these aircrafts where brought from Iran.’ No, you should believe him. And make plans based on that.”

b*****d Saudi backstabbers. the fact that Saudi Arabia had their ‘Vietnam’ against Yemen, one of the poorest countries in the middle east, what makes them think they’ll beat the most sophisticated resistance movement the world has ever seen?

Oh, the gang USaudIsrael wants to break another country. Continuation of the “CIArab Spring?? But it is autumn. So I prefer “CIArab Autumn”. Killing people only in the spring is not enough. It is necessary to use killing other seasons. Banksters in Joo York will be happy. 😉

It honestly is hard to believe that the Houthi militias have the capability to produce rockets and unmanned aircraft. The acts of Saudi Arabia are a definite act of aggression which would destabilize the region more, but we should not play around with military capabilities.

Well, if real, the funny thing to do would be Bibi doing a deal with Aoun : staging a totally false attack, pump at least $30bln from the al-Saouds, then do a grouped order of 300 Rafales. 50/50, Israel can replace old F-16, Lebanon rebuilds a serious Air-Force and they have a shitload of 5th gen. missiles and spare parts… Now, as many F-16 would go to storage… Wy not being realy nasty by giving the remaining Kfir block60 to Yemen (Kfir are Israeli copies of Mirages with canard plan, the block60 is customised to gen.4++ specs : AESA radar,… Read more »
