Saudi vows to combat Hezbollah activities

The Arab League in March formally branded Hezbollah ‘a terrorist organization’

Published: Updated:

Saudi Arabia’s Cabinet on Monday renewed its determination to combat “terrorist activities” by the Lebanese Shiite movement Hezbollah and continue to work with Riyadh’s partners around the world.

The Cabinet has also welcomed the recent United Nations Human Rights Council’s session which discussed the bombardment of the Syrian city of Aleppo amid “the grave and dangerous escalation” by the Syrian regime and “its allies.”

Russia, Iran and Hezbollah have long been allies to Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad’s regim.

It described the “escalation” by the Syrian regime and its allies as a “flagrant violation of the international humanitarian law.”

Russia on Monday blamed failures by the US-led coalition and meagre hopes for diplomacy behind its reason to rule out moves to renew its ceasefire in Aleppo after a brief truce ended at the weekend.
