Saudi Arabia Is Now At War With Iran on Four Fronts

Saudi billionaire Prince Al Waleed bin Talal looks on during a news briefing in Manama in this

On November 5, Hizballah's chief, Hassan Nasrallah, said the resignation was not prompted by the political situation in Lebanon and accused Riyadh of forcing Hariri to resign. But it is plausible that the Saudis are trying to create the context for a different means of contesting Iran in Lebanon: an "Israeli"-Hezbollah war".

Iran has already extended its hegemony over Iraq, Lebanon and Syria; its deployment of forces in Iraq and Syria is a clear message that it is there for the long haul.

Sabhan told Saudi state-owned Al Arabiya that former Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri reportedly relayed information that Hezbollah had committed "acts of a declaration of war against Saudi Arabia by Lebanon and by the Lebanese Party of the Devil", according to Reuters.

The resignation marks the end of a shaky Shia-Sunni political alliance forming the government, which has somewhat managed to keep away the violence battering neighbouring Syria. Al-Hariri's surprise decision has led to concerns that Lebanon could end up with violence or even economic collapse.

"Over the past decades, Hezbollah has unfortunately managed to impose a fait accompli in Lebanon by the force of its weapons, which it alleges is a resistance weapon, ".

Sabhan said Hariri resigned unexpectedly on Saturday during a trip to Saudi Arabia because his life was in danger.

"What's the difference between Hezbollah and ISIS?" he asked.

The main significance of Nasrallah and President Aoun's remarks is that the Lebanese government is not disintegrating in light of the announcement of Hariri's resignation.

In Lebanon's sectarian system the president must be a Maronite Catholic, the prime minister a Sunni and the speaker of parliament a Shi'ite.

"With sustained support from Saudi Arabia and the United States, Saad Hariri withstood these pressures for a time", he added.

On Tuesday, Al-Akhbar, a pro-Hizballah Lebanese daily, claimed he was under house arrest in Riyadh with his family, a claim denied by Saudi Arabia. Israel is not interested in escalation in the near future, and the same is true of Hezbollah. "Saudi Arabia is more concerned than Israel about Iran", he said. He has postponed a visit to Kuwait and directed military and security agencies "to maintain stability", it said.

Al-Jubeir said the missile was manufactured in Iran before being smuggled in parts into Yemen, where "operatives from the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and Hezbollah" assembled it and fired it on Saudi Arabia. Hezbollah's first priority is to achieve victory in Syria, to make sure the Ba'ath regime prevails there.
