Saudi Minister of State for Gulf Affairs Thamer al-Sabhan on Saturday slammed Hezbollah’s “dirty practices” against Saudi Arabia.

In a tweet, Sabhan wrote: "The terrorist party [Hezbollah] and those who support it should not expect that their dirty practices against the kingdom and the Gulf countries will go unpunished."

He added: "All terrorism is the same and must be fought everywhere, would the world accept the existence ISIS and al-Qaeda in the parliaments and governments of their states? The world must unite against all the parties of evil," al-Sobhan said earlier this month.

Sabhan earlier welcomed US sanctions against Hezbollah, but considered the best solution to counter the militias in Lebanon was to form an international coalition against it and against those allied with it.
