Bahrain follows Saudi lead in banishing pro-Hezbollah Lebanese

March 14, 2016 12:12

The Saudi Interior Ministry released a statement on Sunday announcing that the kingdom's residents who support Hezbollah or operate within its ranks would be deported from Saudi Arabia.

The Saudi move is based, according to the statement, on the recent Gulf Cooperation Council's decision to designate Hezbollah as a terrorist organization as well as on the Tunisia Declaration – a declaration adopted by Arab interior ministers on March 2, condemning the "dangerous operations committed by Hezbollah in order to destabilize security and peace in several Arab states."
