Lebanese Politician Describes Saudi Arabia as US, Israel's Errand Boy

A senior Lebanese politician blasted the Saudi aggression against Yemen, saying that Riyadh is only serving the US and Israel.

"The aggression against Yemen was a decision by the US; the tool for implementing this decision was Saudi Arabia and its allies," former Lebanese MP and Head of Al-Shab Movement Najah Vakim.

"The Saudi-led war in Yemen is reminiscent of Israel's aggression against Southern Lebanon in 2006," he added.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for nine days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. According to a report recently released by the United Nations, two weeks of Saudi-led aggression against Yemen has killed at least 519 people, hundreds of women and children among them. Another 1,700 people have also been wounded over the past two weeks.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh's claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

Five Persian Gulf States -- Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Qatar and Kuwait -- and Egypt that are also assisted by Israel and backed by the US declared war on Yemen in a joint statement issued on March 26.

US President Barack Obama authorized the provision of logistical and intelligence support to the military operations, National Security Council Spokesperson Bernadette Meehan said late on March 25.

She added that while US forces were not taking direct military action in Yemen, Washington was establishing a Joint Planning Cell with Saudi Arabia to coordinate US military and intelligence support.
