If the Saudi-led coalition bombing Yemen directed its warplanes towards Israel, Hezbollah would join it, party chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah declared Friday night, accusing Riyadh of seeking to "regain control" of Yemen.Nasrallah, speaking a day after Saudi Arabia launched a surprise military operation against rebel Houthis in Yemen, also rejected claims that Iran posed a threat to the Gulf. Nasrallah denounced Saudi Arabia for leading a campaign against Yemen, but failing to take action against Israel over the decades-long conflict.Even claims that Iran is controlling Yemen through political influence and not through military force is a lie.There is a problem in Saudi Arabia's mentality in that it doesn't respect the will of free peoples. They regard everyone as followers and they can't have an independent will, Nasrallah added. The sharp differences between Lebanese political rivals over the conflict in Yemen would not jeopardize the dialogue between Hezbollah and The Future Movement, which support the Saudi intervention.
