Hizbullah Urges Instant Halt to 'Saudi-American Aggression' in Yemen


Hizbullah on Thursday called for an immediate end to what it described as the “Saudi-American aggression” against Yemen, a day before a scheduled speech by party chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.

"Hizbullah strongly condemns the Saudi-American aggression that targets the brotherly people of Yemen, its national army and its vital institutions," a statement from the group said.

Riyadh has said it assembled a coalition of more than 10 countries, including five Gulf monarchies, for the military operation to defend Yemeni President Abedrabbo Mansur Hadi's government. Washington said President Barack Obama had authorized the "provision of logistical and intelligence support" for the campaign.

The military move against the Shiite Huthi rebels in Yemen triggered fury from Riyadh's regional rival Iran, Hizbullah's main regional ally, with officials in Tehran warning that the military action threatened to spill over into other countries.

Slamming “the participation of some Arab and non-Arab countries in this aggression and their political cover for it,” the party warned that “this Saudi-led adventure that lacks wisdom and legitimate and legal justifications is driving the region towards further tensions and threats that will affect its present and future.”

It described the military operation as “a blatant aggression against people seeking to obtain an independent decision, without hegemony from any state, whether regionally or internationally.”

Accordingly, Hizbullah called on “Saudi Arabia and its allies” to “stop this unjust aggression immediately and unconditionally.”

“This aggression secures the U.S. interests and gives a generous gift to the Zionist enemy and its choices,” the party added.

It also noted that “this brute aggression represents a chance for the sons of the Yemeni people to unite, show domestic solidarity and reach a comprehensive political solution that preserves their country and guarantees its unity and territorial integrity without any foreign interference.”

Later on Thursday, state-run National News Agency said Hizbullah chief Nasrallah is scheduled to deliver a televised speech Friday at 8:30 pm that will tackle "the latest developments in Lebanon and the region."

Hizbullah and its Huthi copy-cats call for the death of America and Israel yet all they do is kill their own arab brothers in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, and Syria.

The honorable Ansarallah fighters will fight back the Wahabis to the end. Their inspiration by Imam Khomeini R.A has risen to new heights. I am sure their spirit will succeed in the upcoming battle for a cancer free wahabi middle east.

Why are you so happy tex? This is what most decent folk were hoping for.

KSA to get involved directly....Lets hope they & Iran meet & sort this out.

Lets see who is willing to go all the way & who stands to lose more.
Keep it rocking KSA & please don;t stop.
Time for the region to change.

Mystic you have it all wrong. I understand that you can be against the wahhabis. No sane person can back the obscurantism of the wahhabis. However, the solution as to call for the shiite backed by iran to fight against the wahhabis is not the right way. First, Iranian wilayet al Fakih is using the dames methods of the wahhabis to maintain its power in Iran rather than opening up to a democratic regime. Second, the manoeuvres led by Iran supporting shia against sunnis can only lead to confrontation and antagonism among the sunnis and the shia. What we see today is the exact consequences of the acts of the iranian shiite revolution.
We need to have less extremism, we need to have a saudi that is more democratic and less extremist. But we also need a more democratic iran and especially an iran that is not conducting an imperialist policy in the region.

Hypocritical, as they are no better...what a joke. But, it's ok for their bretheren to overthrow the government there? And isn't that what you're doing more calculatingly in Lebanon? What's with you foreigners and your shameful ways.

houthis or ISIS are different sides of the same coin of extremism... and yet M8ers support the houthis...
meaning that M8ers support terrorists as long as they are with iran...

By refusing to come to the negotiation table and using the air force to bomb Aden, Ali Abdullah Saleh and his Iranian sponsored Houthis allies crossed a red line. This should bring everybody to the table.

Hizbullah Urges Instant Halt to 'Saudi-American Aggression' in Yemen.........

Nasrallah complaining about :Aggression", I find that funny. The peace loving Nasrallah never exhibited any aggression towards anyone. He always preached if your enemy slaps you on one cheek turn the other cheek.

Hezbollah does make interesting declarations, like the one concerning the latest developments in Yemen, yet Hezbollah seems more content with keep continuing what it's doing, meddle in Syria, meddle in several other countries. Hezbollah also does not seem to be bothered by Iran's role in the Middle East nor does it have the tongue to say anything either. But when anyone opposes Hezbollah or its Iranian patron, the books of accusations will fly wide open. Well, in Yemen it was only a matter of time for the Gulf States to react and now that they are reacting, we are seeing how much firepower they can deploy in no time. However, having said that does not preclude the fact that the Middle East is now entering an extremely delicate and difficult stage, the wild elements of war can never be predicted no matter what, except to fear the worst.
