The crisis with Saudi Arabia erupted after Lebanese Information Minister George Kordahi called the war in Yemen futile and said that Yemen was being targeted and that the Iranian-backed Houthis in the country were defending themselves.

“Saudi Arabia presents itself as a friend of the Lebanese people, and the question is: is this how a friend deals with a friend?” Nasrallah asked, saying that Iran and Syria had been insulted by Lebanese officials and yet had maintained good relations with Lebanon.

“Is what they considered an insult to them in the words of the minister of information more dangerous, greater and more heinous than what is said about Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)?” the Hezbollah leader asked.

Nasrallah stated that the pressure from Saudi Arabia was to fight Hezbollah and that Saudi Arabia had supported and pushed Israel to continue fighting in the Second Lebanon War. The Hezbollah leader added that Saudi Arabia was trying to pressure its allies in Lebanon to unleash a civil war, but that everyone in Lebanon either did not want a civil war or were unable to fight such a war.

Nasrallah scoffed at claims that Hezbollah is dominant in Lebanon, saying that a dominant party would have no problem importing oil or removing judges, and yet Hezbollah has struggled with these issues.
