Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the US Prince Khalid bin Salman said on Thursday that the Kingdom won’t allow the Houthi militias to be another Hezbollah, in reference to Lebanese pro-Iranian militia, stressing that this is what the Islamic Republic of Iran is seeking.


Prince Khalid said, in a series of tweets with videos showing evidence about Hezbollah support for the Houthis, that the Iranian regime, in addition to providing the Houthis with weapons and missiles, is also supporting them with experts from Hezbollah to train them in order to continue their war against the Yemeni people.

The Ambassador further added that “Their presence in Yemen confirms the Iranian regime has subcontracted the Houthi militia to be another one of its proxies; Hezbollah. It proves the regime’s proxies work in tandem to undermine regional stability and prolong the suffering of the Yemeni people.”

Prince Khalid added that a previous operation launched by a special unit in the Arab coalition, revealed evidence that Hezbollah is operative in Yemen, advising the Houthis to use deception tactics, such as using water tanks to store weapons, and smuggling fighters through civilian vehicles, endangering the lives of Yemeni civilians.
