Tehran-backed Militants’ Attack on Saudi Arabia Triggered Outrage in Lebanon

According to the Sharq al-Awsat newspaper, the attacks on Saudi oil facilities have caused widespread condemnation by Lebanese politicians that oppose the Iranian regime’s influence in the Middle East region.

Sheikh Abdul Latif Daryan, Lebanon’s Grand Mufti, condemned the attack on Saudi Arabia and the targeting of oil facilities in northern Jeddah. The Lebanese Movement for the Future also issued a statement condemning Iranian-backed Houthis for attacking Saudi Arabia, targeting oil and vital facilities and civilian areas.

Lebanese Minister of Interior and Municipalities Bassam Mawlawi tweeted: “Attacking Saudi security is” an obvious terrorist act aimed at Arab legitimacy.”

Former General Director of the Lebanese Internal Security Forces Ashraf Rifi also said: “Targeting Saudi Arabia by Iran is not a threat to the kingdom, but a threat to the entire region.”

Mustafa al-Alloush, a former member of parliament, stressed his solidarity with Saudi Arabia and its people in the fight against Houthi terrorism, which is financially supported and led by the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guard Corps.
