Sharm el-Sheikh - Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said on Wednesday he was against the idea of military strikes against Iran or the Tehran-backed Lebanese group Hezbollah as there was enough turmoil already in the Middle East.



He was asked what he thought of the prospect of such strikes in a question and answer session with journalists - two days after Saudi Arabia had accused Lebanon of declaring war through Hezbollah's aggressive actions.



Sisi said he was against war, without spelling out who might be involved in military action.

When asked about recent arrests in Saudi Arabia during an anti-corruption crackdown, Sisi said the situation in the kingdom was reassuring and stable.
