Hizbullah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah: Saudi Arabia Asked Israel to Attack Lebanon

Hizbullah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah said that Saudi Arabia had "asked Israel to attack Lebanon," and had offered "tens of billions of dollars" in return. In his address, which aired on Mayadeen TV on November 11, he said that in the Israeli media, "many are saying that the July 2006 war was waged at the request and incitement of the Saudis."

Hassan Nasrallah: "[Saudi Arabia] is inciting the world's countries against Lebanon. But most dangerously – and let me stress that this does not scare us – it is inciting Israel to attack Lebanon. This is not just commentary, my dear brothers and sisters. All the Lebanese hear me. This is not commentary. It is information. Information! Saudi Arabia has asked Israel to attack Lebanon, and has said that it is willing to give it, in exchange, tens of billions of dollars. Today, there is a discussion in the Zionist entity about this. If you follow the Israeli media, you could see, today and yesterday, that many are saying that the July 2006 war was waged at the request and incitement of the Saudis. When the enemy wanted to stop the war in the final days, it was contacted by the Saudis, who asked it to continue the war until the elimination of the resistance in Lebanon."
