SOT, Hassan Nasrallah, Hezbollah Secretary General (Arabic): ''The US aid which was presented [to Netanyahu], I do not remember such an aid being presented to any former Prime Minister, from annexing Jerusalem to annexing the Golan [Heights], to the 'Deal of the Century', to Trump's absolute support of Netanyahu. However, despite the American and general Western support, he failed to get a majority to form a new Israeli government, the plan failed.''

SCRIPT
Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah cautioned Saudi Arabia against instigating a war with Iran, warning that such a war "will destroy Saudi Arabia". The remarks came during a broadcasted address in Beirut on Friday.
''Don't gamble on a war with Iran because it will destroy you [Saudi Arabia]," said Nasrallah amid rising tensions between the Kingdom and the Islamic Republic over the latter's alleged involvement in an airstrike on Saudi Arabia's oil refineries.
Nasrallah also demanded Riyadh stop the war in Yemen saying, "The continuing war on Yemen has no solution, it is an absurd war and you will pay for it."
"One strike destroyed half of the Saudi oil production, the second strike will destroy everything," warned Nasrallah.
The drone attacks took place on September 14 at an oil processing facility in Abqaiq and the Khurais oil field, effectively cutting 5.7 million barrels per day or 5 percent of global output. Houthi militants operating in Yemen claimed responsibility for the attack. However, the US and Saudi authorities both have accused Iran of the attacks.
