The leader of the Lebanese Islamist movement Hezbollah, Saeed Hassan Nasrallah, said that in case of war Iran would destroy Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. This was reported by Reuters, citing a television appearance.
“Don’t think about the war with Iran, because they will destroy you. (…) Your houses are made of glass, your economy is also glass- like glass cities in the UAE,” the Nasrallah news agency quoted him as saying.
He also advised the Arab states not to increase their air defense forces, but to stop the war in Yemen. On the night of September 14, a fire broke out on the territory of Saudi Arabia’s national oil company Saudi Aramco. The fire was preceded by an explosion caused by an attack by drones.
Yemeni Houthi rebels from the Ansar Allah movement claimed responsibility for the attack. In August, they also struck the Saudi capital, Riyadh, using Samad-3 drones.
In May this year, Yemen reported that airstrikes by the Saudi-led coalition had killed more than 13,000 people in the country.
Yemen’s civil war has been going on since 2014. One of the belligerents is the Houthi militant wing (the Shiite Ansar Allah movement) and the army loyal to the former leadership (this side is backed by Iran and Hezbollah), the other is the troops of exiled Sunni President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi and Saudi-led coalition.
