Hezbollah leader meets with Yemeni rebels
BEIRUT (AP) — Hezbollah says its leader has met with a delegation from Yemen’s Houthi rebels.
The Lebanese militant group said Sunday that Hassan Nasrallah met with a delegation headed by Houthi spokesman Mohamad Abdelsalam to discuss the latest developments in Yemen’s civil war.
Hezbollah is believed to train and support the Iran-backed Shiite Houthi rebels, who are at war with a Saudi-led coalition allied with Yemen’s internationally recognized government.
Hezbollah, which is also an Iran-allied Shiite group, says the Houthis are fighting a war against Saudi and American imperialism.
Iran supports the Houthis but denies arming them. Saudi Arabia and Iran are bitter regional rivals.
