Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah launched a fierce tirade against Saudi Arabia Friday night, saying its military offensive in Yemen was doomed to fail and vowing that the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels would emerge victorious from the "Saudi-U.S. aggression".Speaking on the second day of the Saudi-led military assault against the Houthi rebels, Nasrallah said Hezbollah would have joined the coalition if its warplanes targeted Israel instead of Yemen.He accused Riyadh of launching the war in an attempt to regain control over Yemen and rejected Saudi claims that Iran posed a threat to the kingdom and other Gulf states. Nasrallah, who has voiced support in past speeches for the Houthis in their power struggle in Yemen, called for the "aggression" to stop and for the resumption of talks aimed at a political solution to the conflict.Nasrallah expressed hope that "this new political division in the Gulf" would not lead to negative repercussions in Lebanon, especially with regards to the government and dialogue with the Future Movement.
