Saudi trying to sow sectarian strife in Lebanon: Journalist


The resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Sa’ad Hariri is a planned strife by Saudi Arabia, because the Riyadh regime is trying to “compensate for its losses” in proxy wars in Syria and Iraq, says a journalist.

“They (the Saudis) are trying to sow sectarian strife within Lebanon, they are trying to divide the very fragile situation of Lebanon, they are trying to impose their policies on the Lebanese public and they are trying also to say to Lebanese, ‘you should come down to your knees,” Hussain al-Mousawy told Press TV on Wednesday.

They are also trying to impose Saudi and Israeli policies on Lebanon and the resistance movement of Hezbollah, the journalist said.

Lebanese President Michel Aoun has appealed for national unity as the country is suffering from the aftershocks of Hariri’s sudden resignation.
