Hizbullah Rejects Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri's Resignation

Hizbullah Rejects Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri's Resignation

Hezbollah has not responded to the accusation. Chain-smoking on a chair placed at the shop's entrance, the 53-year-old spat a harsh sentence.

"It puts the country in danger and all of us", he said.

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. No one wants the best for the country.

Hariri, who is closely allied with Saudi Arabia, alleged in a broadcast from an undisclosed location that Hezbollah was "directing weapons" at Yemenis, Syrians and Lebanese.

Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah has called for calm and patience in the face of Hariri's resignation. "If the Saudis are right and it limits Hezbollah and Iran, Israel will gain".

Hezbollah was established by Iran's Revolutionary Guards in 1982 to fight Israeli troops in Lebanon. "If they don't like what they hear, they won't buy from me".

Iran has accused Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman of coordinating with U.S. President Donald Trump to arrange Hariri's resignation, with the goal "creating tension in Lebanon and the region". In his experience, international relations have always, sooner or later, affected Lebanese citizens.

"What goes up comes back down", Leba'ine said, using an Arabic expression that hints to the inevitability of future repercussions on Lebanese soil. A Saudi envoy recently went to the Syrian city of Raqqa, newly retaken from IS, to discuss a Saudi role in reconstruction. When Saudi Arabia and the UAE barred Qatari aircraft from their airspace, Qatar used Iranian airspace. "Foreign countries apply very high taxes, while in Lebanon you pay none", he grinned. "People don't care about politics. We even marry each other", he laughed. Moreover, there have been no recent indications that Hariri prepared or planned to resign, Nasrallah said.

Lebanon's prime minister Saad al-Hariri resigned on Saturday, saying he believed there was an assassination plot against him and accusing Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah of sowing strife in the Arab world.

Similarly, the pro-Hezbollah daily newspaper Al Akhbar featured a picture of Hariri with the headline "Hostage" on Monday.

Al-Shihri had been on his way to the mosque for prayer when he was shot, and died immediately, independent news portal Aden al-Ghad said, citing witnesses.

Hizballah is both a military and a political organisation that is represented in the Lebanese parliament and in the Hariri-led coalition government formed last year. Today they've more-or less declared war on Lebanon (because Hezbollah exists) and Iran (because Yemen shot a missile at them).

An-Nahar, a newspaper which also supports Saudi Arabia but tends to be more moderate with its views, made a comparison between the current situation and the assassination of Hariri's father, Rafik, in 2005.

A separate report in the paper mocked a Lebanese tendency to be over-dramatic.

His announcement came a day after a meeting in Beirut with Ali Akbar Velayati, an advisor to Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Kahmenei.
