Hezbollah denies providing missile fired at Saudi from Yemen

Hezbollah denies providing missile fired at Saudi from Yemen

Lebanese president Michel Aoun, a Hizbollah ally, said Lebanon can not accept suggestions that its government is a partner in acts of terrorism.

Bahrain's foreign minister, Sheikh Khalid Bin Ahmed Al Khalifa, urged strong action by the Arab League against Iran.

Lebanese Foreign Minister Jibran Bassil was absent and was instead represented by Lebanon's permanent representative to the Arab League, Antoine Azzam.

Commenting on the Bahraini foreign minister's statement, American University of Beirut professor Rami Khouri told CNN that "Hezbollah is certainly the single most powerful political group in Lebanon, where governance requires complex consensus building in which Hezbollah is clearly preeminent".

The leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah said on Monday his Iran-backed group had not sent any weapons to Yemen and categorically denied that it was behind the firing of a ballistic missile that was launched at Riyadh from territory held by Yemeni Houthi rebels.

He further says, "The Arab world is divided and a lot of countries convened to Cairo today don't see eye to eye with Saudi Arabia on its ways and means or how it plans to confront Iran in the region".

Saudi Arabia and Iran are backing opposite sides in wars in Yemen and Syria.

Saudi Arabia subsequently expressed its anger at Hezbollah, which maintains close ties with Iran.

Speaking before Al-Jubeir at the 20-minute session broadcast live, Aboul-Gheit, the Arab league chief, was just as critical of Iran as the Saudi minister.

Hariri announced his resignation as prime minister of Lebanon on November 4 from Riyadh on the Saudi-funded Al-Arabiya news network, accusing Iran of destabilizing Lebanon and the region.

Hariri is now in Paris, where he arrived on Saturday after spending 13 says in Saudi Arabia. Many Lebanese, including President Michel Aoun and Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah, have said they believe Hariri resigned under Saudi pressure. The League is notorious for passing resolutions and issuing communiques which are rarely acted upon.

The Saudi draft also includes a warning to Iran against continuing its present policies in the region and orders Arab diplomats to request a meeting of the U.N. Security Council to discuss what it called Iranian "threats", added the diplomats.

While IS no longer controls any urban hub in Iraq, its surviving fighters have regrouped in remote desert areas along the border with Syria and mopping up operations remain to be completed. It said Arab nations will provide details to the SC of Tehran's violations for arming Houthi rebels in Yemen.
