"Former" Lebanese PM Hariri returns to Saudi Arabia after visiting UAE

"Former" Lebanese PM Hariri returns to Saudi Arabia after visiting UAE
Saad Hariri, Lebanon's prime minister who suddenly resigned over the weekend, has reportedly returned to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, after visiting the United Arab Emirates, where he met a top official, his office said Tuesday.


Hariri, an ally of Saudi Arabia, flew to Abu Dhabi and then returned to Riyadh, his office said. His Future TV channel said he would also visit Bahrain.

Much is unknown about Hariri's unexpected resignation, which stunned the Lebanese, threw its government into disarray and prompted a frenzy of speculation.

One of the rumors is that Hariri has been under house arrest in Saudi Arabia, or in some way forced to do the Saudis' bidding. His departure for the UAE could appear to dispel that, except that the Gulf federation is a close Saudi ally — the two countries have been spearheading a war in Yemen since 2015 against the country's Shiite rebels who are backed by Iran.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia sent its harshest threat Tuesday to the Lebanese government, dominated by the Shiite militant group Hezbollah, accusing it of declaring war against the kingdom through support that Hezbollah allegedly provides to Yemen's rebels.
