Lebanon’s Hezbollah chief attacks Saudi Arabia

On Friday The leader of Lebanon’s Iranian backed Shiite militant Hezbollah group launched his harshest criticism yet of Saudi Arabia, accusing the kingdom of spreading extremist ideology in the Muslim world and the killing of civilians in Yemen.

Hassan Nasrallah said via video link during his address to hundreds of supporters Friday at a Beirut rally in support of Yemen’s Iranian backed Shiite Houthi rebels that Saudi-led airstrikes targeting them have not led to victory.

Nasrallah said that the kingdom will soon realize that “the only choice left” is a ground operation in Yemen — a “ground invasion will be costly and will end with a defeat.”
