Nasrallah: Hariri’s resignation is illegitimate because coerced

Hizballah leader Hassan Nasrallah accused Saudi Arabia Friday of suddenly summoning Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri to come without his advisers, forcing him to resign and plunging Lebanon into a new situation. That resignation is therefore illegitimate and unconstitutional,” he said.
The Hizballah leader called this action an invitation “to topple Lebanon under the slogan of war on Hizballah.” Most dangerously, he said, “the Saudis are inciting Israel” to strike Lebanon.“We condemn the blatant Saudi interference in Lebanese affairs and this humiliating behavior with PM Saad Hariri.”

DEBKAfile: The Hizballah leader is in a bind: While his best troops are hundreds of kilometers away fighting for Iran and Syria, his enemies in Riyadh have plunged Beirut into a political crisis which he is helpless to resolve.

    Hey, Nasrallah boy, state again your blasphemy, you mean this happening was not of Allah will?
