It is not unexpected that Hezbollah was displeased with the joint statement made by President Emmanuel Macron’s visit to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, which focused on reforms, limiting weaponry to Lebanese legal forces, and concluding international agreements. At both the domestic and the international levels, Hezbollah forgot that he brought the country to ruin by carrying out Iran’s directives throughout the area.
Macron, who attempted to separate Hezbollah’s military and political wings in August 2020 while ignoring the issue of Hezbollah’s weapons, today joined the Saudis and Lebanese sovereigns in stating that the Lebanese authorities should unilaterally control Lebanese territory and not target the security of the Gulf countries from Lebanon. What will the Iranians and the armed forces think of the new Macron?
Today, Hezbollah is calmly monitoring events. Silent, yes, awaiting for Tehran directions to take action.
