Silence on Yemen Carnage Shows US, Europe Hypocrisy: Hezbollah Official

A top official of the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement says the awkward silence of the United States and Europe on the ongoing Saudi-led massacres in Yemen definitively proves their hypocrisy, stating that Washington is being paid huge sums of money by the Riyadh regime to cover up its crimes.

 “Saudi Arabia can buy US President Donald Trump, the US Congress, the Security Council and major powers with its petrodollars, but cannot win the support of defenseless and honorable Yemeni nation or Hezbollah’s silence. That is why they tend to punish the Lebanese resistance movement through placing it on terrorist lists and adopting economic sanctions against it,” Sheikh Nabil Qaouk, deputy chief of Hezbollah’s executive council, said on Sunday, according to Press TV.
