Former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri accused Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah of being “the actual leader for Houthis” in a series of tweets this morning.

Hariri stressed that Nasrallah is dealing with the "Decisive Storm" as a "personal defeat for his Iranian project in Yemen”, adding that Nasrallah is acting as if he is the "de facto leader of Houthis", and warned him of “dragging Lebanon to a new civil war in the region as a result of the confrontation in Qalamoun on the Syrian border”.

Saad Hariri is the son of the Late Lebanese Prime Minister and businessman Rafic Hariri, who was assassinated in 2005, responsibility of the attack remain unclear.

“Nasrallah deals with the Yemeni crisis as if the whole country is just a Lebanese suburb to him.”

Hariri said Nasrallah doesn’t have what’s best for Lebanon in interest, and that he would push for a war in Qalamoun if it would serve his interests in Syria, Yemen and Iraq.

“What you are doing is neither moral nor religious. You are manipulating the fate of Lebanon," Hariri said.

Nasrallah has appeared Tuesday night on Lebanese TV channels from an unknown place, claiming that Saudi Arabia has failed to achieve its goals the “Decisive Storm”.

"We are facing a catastrophic and clear failure of Saudi Arabia and an explicit triumph for Yemenis” says Nasrallah.

“Hezbollah will intervene in the clashes of Qalamoun border town between Lebanon and Syria” said Nasrallah, explaining that the intervention aims at "pushing danger away from Lebanon and its people."
