Iran supply of missiles 'act of war': Saudi Arabia

Iran supply of missiles 'act of war': Saudi Arabia

Aside from showing hostility to the Iranian nation, Saudi Arabia is against the Yemeni nation and keeps pounding its neighbor, continues to express enmity toward Syria and Iraq by strengthening Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group, and even interferes in the internal affairs of Lebanon by forcing its prime minister to resign, he explained.

He did not spell out what action Saudi Arabia might take against Lebanon, a country with a weak and heavily indebted state that is still rebuilding from its 1975-90 civil war and where one-in-four people is a Syrian refugee, according to Reuters.

Saudi Arabia and Hariri aides have denied reports that he is under house arrest, but he has put out no statements himself denying his movements are being restricted.

Iran has accused Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman of coordinating with U.S. President Donald Trump to arrange Hariri's resignation, with the goal "creating tension in Lebanon and the region".

"We do not want explosions and destruction to happen again in the Hariri family", he added, referring to the fatal bombing of Saad al-Hariri's father and prime minister of Lebanon, Rafik Hariri, in 2005.

In his resignation speech, Hariri attacked Iran and Hezbollah for sowing strife in Arab states and said he feared assassination.

Hizballah is both a military and a political organization that is represented in the Lebanese parliament and in the Hariri-led coalition government formed previous year.

"Keeping Hariri with restricted freedom in Riyadh is an attack on Lebanese sovereignty".

In an interview with Al-Arabiya TV, he threatened: "Lebanese must all know these risks and work to fix matters before they reach the point of no return".
