The secretary general of Lebanon's Hezbollah resistance movement, Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah, has slammed Saudi Arabia’s invasion of Yemen and said real reason for the airstrikes is that Saudi Arabia has lost its domination on the impoverished country.

Nasrallah denounced the Saudi attacks on Yemen, which began on Thursday, saying that the “The Saudi war is aimed at regaining domination over Yemen” he noted.

During a televised speech delivered on Friday night, The secretary general of Lebanon's Hezbollah resistance movement said, Saudis try to justify their attacks by saying that the situation in Yemen threatens the security in the region, Nasrallah stated, adding that such justifications are false and baseless, PRESS TV reports.

The Hezbollah chief stressed that the members of the Saudi-led coalition did not take any measures against revolutionaries in such countries as Tunisia and Egypt during the Islamic Awakening movement in the Middle East and Africa, but used the situation in Yemen as an excuse to wage a bloody war on the country.

World mum on Israel atrocities

Elsewhere in his remarks, Nasrallah condemned "certain Arab countries" for their inaction towards the Israeli aggression in Palestine.

“Israel has never been an enemy in the eyes of certain Arab countries,” the Hezbollah chief said, stressing, “Arab countries have left Palestinian people to suffer.”

Crisis in Syria and Iraq

Nasrallah noted that Riyadh and its allies created and supported the ISIL Takfiri terrorist group to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, and have done nothing to help Iraq counter the terrorists.

“Who is preventing a political solution in Syria? Who is fanning the flames in Syria? The kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its allies,” Nasrallah stated.

He also emphasized that efforts by Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar to turn Syria into a submissive country have proved in vain.

Iran’s support for Hezbollah

The Hezbollah chief hailed Iran’s support for the Lebanese resistance movement, saying, “Since 1982, we have had... friendship (and) very good ties.”

Nasrallah also denounced as a big lie the accusation promoted by some Arab media outlets that Iran is meddling in Yemen’s internal affairs.

“They (the Saudis) said we must retake it from the… Iranian domination. This is one of the biggest lies that have been spread,” the Hezbollah leader said.
