Yemen’s Information Minister Muammar al-Iryani criticized Lebanon’s Hezbollah on Saturday, stating that it has turned its stronghold in Beirut into a platform and a mouthpiece for the Houthi militias, and called on the Lebanese government to abide by a policy of non-interference.

“The Lebanese Hezbollah is part of the Lebanese government and did not just stop at providing logistical support including intelligence and fighters to the Iranian Houthi militias, but has turned the southern suburb to a platform to manage the coup’s propaganda machine in Yemen and attack and tarnish the coalition that supports legitimacy,” Iryani said on his official Twitter account.

He called on the Lebanese government in a series of tweets to abide by a policy of non-interference, and to stop these “subversive and inciting activities.”

“I call on the Lebanese government and the Lebanese minister of information to abide by a non-interference policy that it had announce it would take towards conflict in the region, and to intervene to stop the subversive and inciting activities of the Iranian Houthi militias in Lebanon under the cover of political, security and financial support from Hezbollah,” Iryani said.

Iryani also called on the Lebanese government to stop the airing of the al-Masirah satellite channel and similar sites online, as well as the “dozens of Houthi factions in Lebanon.” He said that this illegal activity harms Yemen’s security and stability, and harms relations between both countries.
