Lebanon's Hariri not believed to be in Saudi custody

World War 3 Saudi Arabia Iran Lebanon

Saudi Oger was responsible for building vast swathes of Saudi Arabia and helping develop the cities of the desert kingdom into some of the world's leading metropolises.

"The French president condemned the Houthi missile attack on Riyadh and stressed France's stand and solidarity with the Kingdom", the official Saudi Press Agency said.

Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates also called on their citizens to avoid traveling to Lebanon on Thursday and recommended their citizens leave the country if they are now within Lebanon's borders. Bahrain had urged its citizens to leave Lebanon on Sunday.

On Saturday, Hariri announced his resignation claiming that it stemmed from a "rejection of Iran's political over-extension in the region".

While perhaps sudden both in its timing as well as its staging, Hariri's resignation was quite inevitable given the sequence of regional events and the continued Iranian-Saudi tensions, which positioned Hariri between the Saudi anvil and Hezbollah's hammer.

In a pre-recorded video, he accused Iran and the powerful Lebanese Shiite militia of Hezbollah of sowing "fear and destruction" across the region.

It also made the Hariri family multi-billionaires - Saad Hariri was estimated to worth around $4.1bn in 2005 shortly after his father's death. Saudi Arabia has not stated why it has issued this order.

Hariri has so far ignored the calls from his own Future Movement to return to Lebanon.

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir also said on Monday that Hariri had not been forced to resign and was free to leave the country any time.

Hence, the source preferred anonymity to offer his views on the situation generated from the resignation of Prime Minister Saad Hariri. "It was not his intention, not his wish and not his decision", Nasrallah said in a televised speech.

Saudi officials have denied Hariri is under house arrest.

Lebanese President Michel Aoun has said that he will not accept Hariri's resignation until he returns to Beirut. Saudi Arabia says it considers Hezbollah's participation in the Lebanese government an "act of war" against the kingdom.

Saudi threats, and a flurry of rumors based off of them, have seen Lebanon's bond market crumble all week, with growing expectations that the Saudis, already in the process of invading Yemen, intend to do something to Lebanon as part of their proxy war against Iran.
