Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah attacked both Saudi Arabia and Israel in comments he made on Tuesday, warning that a third intifada was brewing in the West Bank.

Nasrallah blamed Saudi Arabia for "the killings in our region," and hinted at their involvement in the 2006 Second Lebanon War, the Lebanese Al-Akhbar newspaper reported.

Nasrallah accused the Saudis of funding terror activities in the region, and referred to the Gulf state's official Wahhabi school of Sunni Islam as an "existential threat," serving, along with Israel, the interests of the United States in the region.

Saudi Arabia enables Islamic State and al-Qaida to act in Yemen, Nasrallah claimed, neglecting the real danger that these terror organizations pose to the region.

He also blamed Riyadh for the hajj stampede that killed over 700 pilgrims in late September.

He stressed that Saudi Arabia must not be blinded, and should remember that "Israel remains their real enemy."

"We must be weary of Israel and always be ready," Nasrallah said. "Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in a state of confusion, while the West Bank is on the brink of a third intifada."
