8:02 pm
for supplying the weapon tara for its parts has dismissed the accusation as quote contrary to reality meanwhile what appears to be the saudi orchestrated resignation of lebanon's prime minister has thrown that country into political turmoil they know the reports from beirut it has been three days since lebanese prime minister sato had announced his shock resignation he made his statement in saudi arabia and hasn't returned home since instead he traveled to abu dhabi a saudi ally in the iranian camp for talks on an escalating political crisis back home but the crisis extends beyond lebanon's borders saudi arabia has made clear it wants to curb iranian influence not just here but across the region riyadh is accusing iran of what it called direct military aggression by providing hutu rebels in yemen with rockets used to target the kingdom saudi officials have also said the
8:03 pm
very presence of hezbollah in the lebanese government amounts to a declaration of war. saudi arabia through a stretch when the lebanese government and people to finish off has blown it's an invitation to civil war there's a new front saudi israel and the us against iran. iran has proxies across the middle east in iraq it controls paramilitary forces that are stronger than the state in yemen saudi arabia is in a quagmire unable to defeat the iranian allied hooty s. in syria it has revolutionary guards and hezbollah troops supporting the government iran has now secured a land core door stretching from to her on through iraq and syria all the way to lebanon where saudi arabia hopes it can change the balance of power. saudi arabia. it is even classified as a terrorist organization but now. action in the words.
8:04 pm
affairs there will be those who are forced to return to their caves in southern lebanon curbing hezbollah's influence and power won't be easy it is not just an armed group it is a political party with strong popular support but as of late it has extended its influence beyond lebanon's borders. hezbollah's arms it's this is to send troops to fight alongside syrian president bashar assad's forces have long been issues of concern among some lebanese factions but it has long resisted calls to disarm and to withdraw from syria it's not clear what action saudi arabia will take. riyadh has a number of options to restrain but those options will just target has been in the shia sect they will target all the lebanese economic pressures very possible but i don't believe saudi arabia can pressure is below militarily calls for unity are

8:06 pm
to build on what it considers to be victorious expansion of its influence in its neighboring countries like iraq syria lebanon and so on and i think so you're abia wants to fend off iran and iran influence especially in its immediate surroundings like in yemen and hence we are seeing both regimes escalating their their tensions their conflict and really demanding of the various countries sovereign nations of the region to take sides are you with iran or are you with saudi arabia the u.n. has condemned saudi arabia's blockade of yemen ass catastrophic and international aid groups are calling on riyadh to lift it fuel prices in yemen have increased more than sixty percent and cooking gas prices have doubled in saudi arabia and i was to monday it would close all land and sea to stop the flow of arms into the
