BEIRUT-On Sept. 16, Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah met in Beirut with the official spokesman of the Ansarallah movement, Mohammed Abdulsalam.
Nasrallah received the Yemeni delegation and discussed the political situation in the region particularly in Yemen.
Both sides discussed the current truce negotiations with Saudi Arabia and stressed the importance of ending the Saudi embargo on Yemen as a prerequisite for lasting peace.
The UN-brokered truce between the Saudi-led coalition and the government in Sanaa first came into effect in April. Since then, the truce has been extended twice, but has been violated hundreds of times.
Since 2015, the relationship between Lebanon-based Hezbollah and the Yemen-based Ansarallah movement has turned into an alliance that Israel considers a threat.
After the attack on Saudi Aramco oil installations in 2019, the Israeli security establishment raised the threat level from Yemen.
The official said Hezbollah is “deceiving the Zionist regime by creating tensions only on the northern front,” yet Israel is aware that Yemen can open an additional front against the Telaviv regime during a possible war with Lebanon.
