Hezbollah leader Seyed Hassan Nasrallah has said Saudi Arabia is hand in gloves with the US and Israel in the assassination of Iran’s top commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani and his companions.
“The criminal assassination of General Soleimani was not only an American crime, but I believe that Israel and Saudi Arabia were culprits in this crime as well, even if their role was just to provoke Washington to commit it,” Nasrallah said in a recent interview with the al-Mayadeen television network
He also noted that in addition to Soleimani he is also on the joint hit list drawn up by the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia.
According to Nasrallah, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had tried to goad President Donald Trump during his first visit to Washington into authorizing the assassination of top Hezbollah commanders through Israeli operations
Nasrallah added that he has always been a target for the common axis of the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia both before and after the assassination of Soleimani, adding that efforts made in this regard become more intense before the recent US presidential election because Trump needed its impact on US polls.
Soleimani was assassinated by a US drone near Baghdad International Airport on January 3.
