Seyed Hassan Nasrallah described Riyadh as state terror for financing ISIS

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Secretary General of the Lebanese Hezbollah Resistance Movement Seyed Hassan Nasrallah accused Saudi Arabia of financing ISIS terrorist group and of committing atrocities in war-torn Yemen, describing the actions of Riyadh as a "state terror."

The Saudi policy in Yemen, as well as the country’s alleged support for ISIS terror group, can be regarded as state terrorism, Nasrallah was quoted.

“The war (unleashed) by Saudi Arabia in Yemen is a real state terror … ISIS stems from Saudi Arabia and is financed by Saudis,” Nasrallah said in his speech on the occasion of the 17th anniversary of liberation of South Lebanon from Israel.

From his point of view, the Hezbollah chief believes Saudi Arabia failed to fulfill its goals in the region by enabling the creation of radical militant armies.

“Today the world regards Saudi Arabia as the center of the Takfiri (ideology) and the main sponsor of the radical groups,” the Hezbollah leader said.

He said that Saudi Arabia needed the United States' support in order to retain its positions in the region and counter Iran.

“Saudi Arabia provided (US President Donald) Trump with everything to unleash the war against Iran and the resistance movement (pro-Iranian formations),” Nasrallah added.
