Israel has the right to defend itself and its borders Iran-supported militias like Hizbullah, says Muhammad Al-Qabiban, a Saudi strategic expert.
According to him, Iran’s intervention has triggered anarchy and chaos in the region. “In my opinion, [Israel] has the right to protect its borders. The flagrant Iranian intervention in the Arab regions has thrown the region into chaos, and this has enabled Israel to do what it likes in the region,” he said.
The Saudi expert criticized Iraqi, Lebanese, and Yemeni leaders for complaining about Israeli intervention in the Arab region even though it is they who have empowered Iran to destroy the region under the pretext of the Islamic revolution.
Al-Qabiban said that Shi’ite militias in the Arab countries have attacked Israel. Iran wants to destroy Arab countries for sectarian and economic reasons. He referred to Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah as a joke. “What do we see? We see that these (Shi’ite militias) strive to destroy the Arab countries from sectarian and economic perspectives. They have not sent a single plane against Israel.”
