A senior Hezbollah official says Riyadh’s “anger and failure in the region” is behind its hostile stance against the Lebanese resistance movement, which has been battling Takfiri groups in Syria.

In recent months, Saudi Arabia has cranked up its pressure on Lebanon amid Hezbollah’s gains against Takfiri militants in Syria.

In March, the Arab League and the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), both under Riyadh’s influence, decided to classify Hezbollah as a terrorist organization under the Saudi pressure.

“Saudi Arabia and its allies’ anger and failure in the region prompted them to take revenge on the resistance in Lebanon because it has been a staunch supporter of the resistance in Syria,”  the deputy head of Hezbollah’s executive council Nabil Qaouk said Monday.

He further said Saudi Arabia and its allies have failed to break the will of Hezbollah, and that no one would be able to defeat the resistance front “no matter what resolutions they adopt.”

Last month, Saudi Arabia suspended a $3-billion package to the Lebanese army and $1 billion in aid to its internal security forces.

Hezbollah slammed Riyadh’s move and said it exposes the real face of Saudi Arabia and refutes its claims about fighting terrorism.

Qaouk further stressed his movement’s steadfastness in fulfilling its duties, saying “We will never back down on our duty to protect our people against the Takfiri and Israeli aggression.
