The war of words between Hezbollah and the Future Movement over the conflict in Yemen escalated Thursday, a day before a much-anticipated speech by the Shiite party's leader to tackle the situation in the Gulf state.Ahmad Hariri, the secretary-general of the Future Movement, launched a scathing attack against Hezbollah and Iran over their interference in Yemen, accusing the Islamic Republic of committing crimes in the Arab world.Hariri said that the Saudi-led "Decisive Storm" military operation in Yemen had revealed Iran's hatred toward Arabs and demonstrated that it was far weaker than Arab nations.The Future Movement hailed the operation as a necessary step to end growing Iranian influence in Yemen, while Hezbollah slammed it as an interference in Yemeni affairs and an assault on Yemeni people.Hezbollah's parliamentary bloc blasted a U.N. Security Council decision to impose an arms embargo on Yemen's Houthis, describing the Saudi-led military operation in Yemen as a "strategic sin".Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah will comment on developments in Yemen in a speech Friday.
