“Saudi Arabia's latest interference in Lebanon's internal affairs is embodied in meddling in the country's upcoming parliamentary elections. Saudi interventions are pitting the Lebanese against each other, and creating divisions and political tensions among them,” Deputy Chairman of Hezbollah's Executive Council Sheikh Nabil Qaouq said on Saturday.
He added, “Saudi Arabia wishes to change Lebanon’s political equations through interfering in the elections, collecting information about composition of future electoral lists and supporting candidates that could challenge Hezbollah.”
Commenting on the ongoing military drills between the US and Israeli armies in the southern areas of occupied Palestinian territories, the senior Hezbollah official pointed out that “the maneuver officially documents Israel's recognition of the fact that Hezbollah can reach the depth of Israel, and that Israel has no ability to confront the resistance movement’ rockets.”
Qaouq stressed that Hezbollah is now the main obstacle to Israel’s expansionist policies in the West Asia region.
