Saudi Ambassador to the United States Prince Khalid bin Salman bin Abdulaziz accused on Monday the Iranian regime of trying to subjugate the Arab region to its influence through its various proxy forces, such as the Hezbollah group in Lebanon.

He vowed in a series of tweets that Saudi Arabia will not allow the emergence of “another Hezbollah in the Arabian peninsula.”

“The Iranian regime founded Hezbollah in Lebanon, a terrorist proxy which acts as its subcontractor in the region, helping the regime in killing dozens of Americans and committing genocide against the Syrian people, among other things,” he continued.

“The regime of Iran is trying to replicate the Hezbollah model in Yemen, where they finance the Houthi militia and arm it with lethal weapons, enabling them to attack the Yemeni people, disrupt international shipping routes, and destabilize the whole region,” he charged.
