“Our point of view when it comes to new troubles with either Iran or Hizbullah or any other issue is that we have to deal with great care so as not to add to the challenges and troubles of the region,” he said.
However, al-Sisi did support Riyadh on its crackdown on royal family members, former cabinet minister and businessmen – saying it’s country’s internal issue.
The new tension in the region is the result of the failure of Israel’s proxy war in Syria – thanks to Iranian, Hizbullah and Russian support for Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.
“Determination to roll back Iranian power unites the unlikely triumvirate: Benjamin Netanyahu, Crown Prince Salman and Donald Trump,” reported Jewish Bloomberg on November 10.
On Friday, Hizbullah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah in a televised speech from Beirut said that he was shocked by the resignation of prime minister Sa’ad Hariri which represented unprecedented Saudi intervention into Lebanese internal affairs and a declaration of war on Lebanon and Hizbullah.
“I want to tell Saudi Arabia and its followers that they will lose in their interventions in the affairs of Arab countries. Hariri is a prisoner in Saudi Arabia, and cannot return to his own country. Saudi Arabia is trying to impose its will on Lebanese government. It’s trying to sow the seed discord among various political factions here and pit them against each other,” said Nasrallah.
Nasrallah also accused Saudi ‘royals’ of working with the Zionist regime to attack the organization which has its members in Hariri’s cabinet and country’s parliament. He accused the ‘royals’ for funding Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 2006, which resulted in a crushed defeat for the Jewish army.
Lebanese Christian president Gen. Michel Aoun in a statement said that Sa’ad Hariri must return to Lebanon to resign his post.
On November 4, Iran’s foreign ministry rejected Sa’ad Hariri’s accusation of Iran’s meddling in Lebanese internal affairs. Interestingly, in September 2017, Sa’ad Hariri in a statement had accused the Zionist entity of faking lies about Iran.
