Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri, who has been in the United Arab Emirates for months after facing serious setbacks on the Lebanese political scene, criticized Tuesday remarks made by Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah targeting Saudi Arabia. In a tweet, Hariri said Saudi Arabia is not a threat to Lebanon.
Hezbollah's leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said in a speech on Saturday that the investigator of the Beirut port blast was politically biased. On Thursday, Beirut marked the one year anniversary of the blast that flattened large swathes of the city and killed more than 200 people. A judge, Tarek Bittar, is leading the probe into what happened.
