Leader of the Lebanese, Shi'ite terror organization Hezbollah Hassan Nasrallah said on Friday that his group had information indicating that Saudi Arabia has asked Israel to attack Lebanon. "This is information and not an interpretation," Nasrallah asserted in a speech he made amid a quickly-escalating rift between Lebanon and Saudi Arabia over the sudden resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Hariri last week.
While Lebanon considers Hariri to be held forcibly in Saudi Arabia, the Hezbollah leader claimed Friday that the prime minister's resignation was "illegal, not constitutional and baseless, because he has not written even a single letter in his resignation announcement.
We do not recognize Hariri's resignation, because it was done forcibly," he said.
