But the head of Lebanon's powerful Hezbollah movement on Friday accused Saudi Arabia of holding Hariri hostage against his will. "The head of the Lebanese government is detained in Saudi Arabia, he is banned from returning to Lebanon until now", Nasrallah said in a televised address.

The first is the uncertainties, gaps and jumbles that the U.S.'s changing global role brings to the region and from the Pacific to Europe and the Middle East. In addition, the aggressive and inconsistent policies that the resorting to for the protection of its economic interests are intensifying uncertainty. The kingdom seemingly thinks that its partnership with the U.S. and Israel is sufficient to walk down this path. Unfortunately, they are making a big mistake.

Just ten days ago, the Prime Minister of Lebanon, in a televised speech from Saudi Arabia, announced his resignation and cites Iran's influence over his country as one of the reasons behind his decision.

In a Thursday statement, Qassemi slammed the anti-Iran remarks made by French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian during his recent visit to Riyadh.

While Tehran's nuclear program has been temporarily frozen there is no doubt about the country's intention to acquire nuclear capabilities.

"We see Iranian attempts at bringing about an escalation, but I don't see a high chance for this at the moment", he said. Saudi Arabia, aside from Israel, is a strong ally of the United States and there would be no way it could escape intervening. "There should be a major regional plan to stop the Iranian threat", Eisenkot told the outlet.

The interview is the most tangible evidence to date of a thaw in Saudi-Israel relations following several reports of clandestine contacts between the two countries.

Eisenkot rejected the claim that Israel provides aid to Syrian jihadist group Al-Nusra as totally false: "Al-Nusra and its ilk are our enemies, like the Islamic State". Gadi Eisenkot gave a rare interview with the London-based Saudi-owned newspaper Elaph.

A picture taken on November 16, 2017, shows Israeli Army officer Lt. Col Elad Efrati battalion commander standing next to a tank at an army position overlooking southern Lebanon in the northern Israeli town of Metula, along Israel's border with Lebanon. "The first from Iran through Iraq to Syria and Lebanon, and the second from Bahrain through to Yemen until the Red Sea".

For its part, Saudi Arabia has been seeking to boost oil sales to China, which is the world's largest crude oil importer. In almost all great so-called religious conflicts, what lies behind the shouting of the clerics is a contest between the power of nations. "Saudi Arabia has never been an enemy of Israel, - they never fought us and we never fought them", Eisenkot said. We are also seeing a drop in support for Hezbollah and that is reverberating on the streets where we have seen demonstrations in Dahiya.
