Criticism of Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah's latest anti-Saudi Arabia tirade poured in over the weekend, with many saying his remarks put the interests of Lebanese living in the Gulf at risk.Rifi said Lebanese-Saudi brotherhood ought to be safeguarded.Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Jumblatt also criticized the "foolish" remarks made by Nasrallah against Saudi Arabia and reiterated his support for the Saudi-led military campaign in Yemen.Even Hezbollah's close allies distanced themselves from Nasrallah's remarks, with Free Patriotic Movement official Alain Aoun announcing that his group's alliance with Hezbollah does not automatically entail that the FPM shares the party's views on Yemen.Aoun hoped that tensions between Hezbollah and Gulf states would not reflect on all the Lebanese communities there.Lebanese Forces MP George Adwan also highlighted the detrimental repercussions that Nasrallah's words could generate on Lebanese communities living and working in the Gulf.
