Nasrallah on Saudi oil attack: Don’throw stones if you live in glass house

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah says the last Saturday attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities  by the Yemeni Ansarullah movement shows that the kingdom and its allies should stop their aggression if they are vulnerable to such retaliatory moves.

Nasrallah stressed during a memorial ceremony of senior Lebanese cleric Sheikh Hussein Kourani on Friday, that the drone attack launched by the Yemeni army and popular committees on Aramco facilities and the reactions in the international community showed that oil is unfortunately viewed more valuable than human blood in today’s world.

Nasrallah said the United States and its European allies, who condemned the Houthi Ansarullah attack, should instead denounced the Riyadh regime’s crimes against the Yemeni men, women and children over the past five years since the war began in March 2015.

He said the oil attack shook the world while so much bloodshed didn’t.

Nasrallah also advised the Al Saud family to reconsider their geopolitical calculations and stop pointing the finger at Iran, stressing that any war on Iran will destroy them with or without help from the US.

He said that if Saudi Arabia and the UAE stop their war on Yemen, they will no longer need to channel their resources and other people’s money to fund their war machine and buy costly defense systems.

He said the continuation of the aggression against Yemen will lead to such drone attacks that hit their oil facilities in Buqayq (Abqaiq) and inflicted heavy losses upon both Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

Those who live in glass house must calm down and review their stance, Nasrallah warned.

Nasrallah also advised Riyadh and Abu Dhabi to avoid betting on any US war on Yemen in future, stressing that US President Donald Trump is blackmailing them while at the same time he is openly asking to meet Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

Israeli Elections

Nasrallah also said the results of the recent Israeli elections, where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has failed to defeat his rival Benny Gantz, show that that the regime is suffering from a deep leadership crisis.

He said Netanyahu tried his best to win by escalating tensions against Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Gaza and Iran but still failed to win despite enjoying full US support.

“Netanyahu tried to change equation in Lebanon in a bid to stay in power and continue on as incumbent Israeli prime minister. He even engaged in fiery rhetoric against Iran, but his bid to secure another term just failed,” he said.
