Saudi Arabia Orders Its Citizens To Leave Lebanon Immediately

In a odd coincidence, just moments after we published an article laying out Hezbollah's military power at a time when both Saudi Arabia and Lebanon appear to be targeting Lebanon, and just two days after we discussed a leaked Israeli cable that confirmed Saudi Arabia and Israel are deliberately coordinating to destabilize the region and push Lebanon to a state of war, Saudi Arabia has ordered its citizens residing in Lebanon to leave immediately in a travel warning issued on Thursday, November 9. As Al Arabiya adds, the travel warning also called for Saudi nationals not to travel to Lebanon from any point of origin.

Full advisory below:

Official Source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Saudi nationals visiting or residing in Lebanon are asked to leave the country as soon as possible.

 

Riyadh, Safar 20, 1439, November 09, 2017, SPA -- Due to the situations in the Republic of Lebanon, the official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that the Saudi nationals visiting or residing in Lebanon are asked to leave the country as soon as possible.

 

The Kingdom advised all citizens not to travel to Lebanon from any other international destinations.

This follows a similar warning issued by the Kingdom of Bahrain on November 5 urghing its nationals residing in Lebanon to leave immediately and to "exercise caution.” The Bahraini call came a day after Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri announced his resignation, while on location in Saudi Arabia, citing concerns he could be assassinated like his father, criticized the Lebanon-based Hezbollah paramilitary and political movement and accused Iran of alleged attempts to bring destruction to the region. The Bahraini foreign ministry said in a statement received by AFP that its call was "in the interest of its citizens’ safety and to avoid any risks they may be exposed due to the conditions and developments” that Lebanon is going through.

Earlier, Reuters reported that Lebanon believes former premier Saad al-Hariri, who as noted above resigned on Saturday while in Saudi Arabia, is being held by Riyadh, and Beirut plans to work with foreign states to secure his return, a top Lebanese government official said on Thursday. A second Reuters source, a senior politician close to Saudi-allied Hariri, said Saudi Arabia had ordered him to resign and put him under house arrest. A third source familiar with the situation said Saudi Arabia was controlling and limiting his movement.

Saudi Arabia and members of Hariri’s Future Movement have denied reports that he is under house arrest. But he has put out no statements himself denying his movements are being restricted. He made a one-day flying visit to the United Arab Emirates earlier this week before returning to Saudi Arabia.

Earlier on Thursday, Saudi Arabia's foreign minister also urged the international community to slap fresh sanctions against Iran, accusing its regional rival of supporting terrorism.

"We would like to see sanctions on Iran for its support of terrorism and sanctions on Iran for violating the ballistic missile resolutions of the United Nations," Adel Al-Jubeir, Saudi minister of foreign affairs, told CNBC Thursday.

Al-Jubeir also said that the landmark nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers was "weak," especially given Tehran would be capable of assembling a bomb "within weeks." He added he would like to see international agencies carry out a "much more robust" job when conducting inspections in Iran.

Al-Jubeir also described the situation in Lebanon as "unfortunate" and went on to accuse Hezbollah of "hijacking the system" and putting "roadblocks" in front of Hariri at every opportunity. When asked whether Saudi Arabia was headed for a direct conflict with Iran, Al-Jubeir replied, "We hope not", and yet just hours later Riyadh made it clear that any Saudi citizens in Lebanon are now in danger.

Needless to say, traditionally such accelerate evacuation orders have preceded military intervention. Should that be the case again, keep a close eye on oil.

Both countries are under Illuminati leasership/management , so have been directed to stire up chaos in the hope to create openings for Nato declaration of war on Russia . Israel might do a FF on itself to draw in the US . Declaration of WW allows Masonic States to shut down Real News sites and move to intense propaganda of youth via Military leadership and block insights into the 'shadow gov's ' power . To save the NWO , they need to block Russia and China ,particularly Russias supply of resources to China , that can allows China to grow independently. The Illuminati are now angry and deperate , their puppets (all over the West) are under the threat of make it happen or kiss your asses goodbye . Royal Saud family is fighting for its own lives and existance or be thrown to the mob . I suspect Israel has its own shadow gov Illuninati actors pulling strings via Mossad and military etc .  They love their numerology . 11/11/17 seems like something to put on a monument .

Saudis know they can't stand toe to toe vs Iran. They need Israhell and other allies and US arms and intelligence. It's going to be an all out war and everyone's interest will be to prolong it for as long as possible. Joos want to empty the ME to Europe so they can create their greater Israhell dream and destroy the white European societies as they despise joos as much as they despise Muslims, the US just wants wars so they can sell arms to all sides, Russia wants higher oil prices and control oil and gas and it will if ME burns, and Saudis and Iranians are getting beyond personal with total destruction of either being the only result. This is war that will go on for decades. Europe will be run over by Muslims and the libtards in power won't do anything about it. It will lead to revolutions, EU breakup, and eventually WW3 once everyone has taken their side. I just hope the outcome from all this is that Israhell will be totally destroyed and will no longer exist.

MBS is nuts.  Does he believe that Syria and Yemen would sit idle after Lebanon is attacked?  Has he considered what Chinese and Russian reactions will be?Trump is playing with fire *if* this is his way of bringing Iran to the table for negotiations.  His best baker won't be able to make a chocolate cake to cool the situation should it turn hot.  IMO, I doubt Trump wants the US to be directly involved in another war.  However, he's going to let MBS make the biggest mistake and the result will be the dissolution of Saudi Arabia.  Wouldn't it be interesting if Trump offered Saudi Arabia to Iran in exchange for continuing the Petrodollar and dumping the Hezzies?

It's all going to end bad for Axis of Evil, Satanic Israel, Sunni Al-Qaeda Terrorist Saudi Arabians and the National Terrorist Zionist Occupided USA.Israel to FALL and be destroyed by Hezbollah, USA to be destroyed by Russia, China or MotherNature, and Saudi Arabia to be taken by the Iranian Military.

No possibility the Saudi's will attack Lebanon.  But they could very easily do to Lebanon what they just did in Syria.  The sectarian factions that fought so viciously during the 1980s, could be lured into a repeat even more violent and destructive.Ironically, it was this 1980s violence that spawned the creation of Hezbollah.  So all the Saudi's will achieve in the end is more death, instability, radicalism, and terrorism.

Greateest evil at work here, hammering n already damaged and extremely old culture, completely rooted in our civilisation. Most Americans are clueless and should look at a map, Leboanon might be the size of a county in a state like Texas... threat level is beyond ridiculously... low, Hezbollah, Iran and all the usual BS... The Wrath of God is going to hit ours lands...

Dear Lebanese Citizens,We, the formerly middle-class American people, would like to apologize in advance for any actions perpetrated overtly or covertly by our government. As you know, our government is owned lock, stock and barrel by rich zionist jews and they have purchased the use of our military with their zio-campaign-bucks.Believe me, we are as tired of these zionist neocon war-mongering traitors as you are of having them on your border.Best of luck to you. We pray for your safety and well-being.~ Every Real American

You mean the bombing Mossad knew about and conveniently forgot to notify the Americans?What Did Mossad Know, and When?Mr. Ostrovsky's most sensational charge is that Mossad, having learned from an informant in Beirut in 1983 that a Mercedes truck was being prepared to hold bombs, guessed that the target might be an American installation there but never gave this information to the United States. Instead, he alleges, Nahum Admoni, the Mossad chief, decided to pass along only a ''general warning'' that someone might be planning an operation against the Americans. On Oct. 23, a yellow Mercedes truck crashed through the flimsy barriers of the United States compound and blew up a barracks, killing 241 United States Marines. http://www.nytimes.com/1990/10/07/books/what-did-mossad-know-and-when.h…

Young buck MbS gwanna open barrels o' whup ass.

To advance Saudi society beyond oil and into multifaceted, diversified economic strength, he needs capital and fewer enemies.

He gets both with the purge, and the Shia housecleaning he seems to be angling for. Israel can get along with that too.

Central question is: what does Vlad do?

No doubt MbS has worked that contingency, and it wouldn't surprise me too much if Russia ended up hanging Iran out like a used dishrag. Fact is, the world needs their oil, NOT their radicalism.

MbS also sees in Kimchee, what can happen when one waits too long to destroy an enemy. They develop the means to hang around indefinitely.

Very explosive situation virtually overnight with mega testosterone flowing.

Has a black swan finally arrived?

Watching oil...

...and very big change a comin', I think.

Our masters are desperate to start WWIII as a diversion to the inevitable global fiscal collapse, coming to a theater near you soon.  It looks like the team line-up is the pseudo royal thugs of the Persian gulf plus, Israhell, and the USA versus Hezbollah, Iran, and Russia, with China as a tag team Russian back-up.  The Saudi army is a hysterical joke.  The vaunted IDF got their asses kicked in their invasion of southern Lebanon by Hezbollah in 2006, and Hezbollah is exponentially stronger now in terms of manpower, weaponry, and battle experience.  Without a 6 digit USA "boots-on-the ground" invasion, that situation is hopeless.  Probable strategy is for Israel to bomb Iran in "retaliation” for helping Hezbollah, and then for the USA to join in.  Russia cannot allow Iran to fall, as the Russian province of Chechnya is the next objective of the Rothschild cabal.  Either the whole things goes strategic nuclear or the USA, Saudi, Israeli coalition is about to get a serious asskicking.  If it goes the former, geologists will wonder in 100,000 years why there is a huge patch in the SE Mediterranean coast that resembles a black glass parking lot with a star of david in the middle.  Since ZH is a purportedy financial blog, my advice is to be prepared to buy call options on US manufacturers of body bags, and put options on mutton as a lot of Exceptionalstani sheeple are about to get roasted.

Just thought I'd throw in, there's no such thing as a "star of david".  It's a hexagram star of Saturn aka Remphan, Chiun, etc(satan).Odd that it's found dominating above the eagle on the US Seal, from the 1700s, then picked as the symbol of zionism, and to be placed on the flag of the false israel."Novus Ordo Seclorum", from Vergil's declogue speaking of the rise of the "Reign of Saturn"....It's all just a big accidental coincedence......The "CUBE" worshipped by Muslims is a three-dimensional hexagram.  Mohammad was raised in a jewish conclave and his mentor was a rabbi.  Just another coincedence.

There's already a false prophet called zionism.  They even called down fire from heaven, aka nukes on civilians to show their awe-inspiring power.A few of the lying wonders the false prophet puts forth, the "holy-cost" aka "Passion of the Jews", where the world is to be in permanent pity mode, and Christians were blamed and subsequently fooled into cooperation with antichrist to show their remorse.  The creation of a "Jewish State" called Israel, when Israel has never been "jewish", nothing to do with Pharisaism(judaism), and there is no scriptural support for a "jewish state" called Israel, or any possession of land by these people who call themselves "jews" today.  The false prophet with their false israel, their false burnt offering to usher in themselves as their own messiah, their false claim to a history that doesn't belong to them, etc.  Just a lot of jewish fables spun by the Synagogue of Satan and the false prophet of zionism.

To the Labanese people;It appears that the leaders of foreign nations are planning to bomb, spary chemicals, murder and maim you all for things you have no control over.These aggresive war mongering nations bought a whole slew of weapons from the USA to cause the most destruction to your homes, businesses and infastructure possible.Nothing left to do but pray and hope your family isn't burned alive.  Maybe Israel's God will hear your pleas and cut them down a few notches.I for one am hoping that Lananon doesn't turn into Syria.

https://www.bruceonpolitics.com/2014/09/12/the-true-history-of-the-country-of-palestine/  One of the biggest lies is that the state of Israel was built out of a scrap of desert with just a few primitives “Arabs” wandering around. So they perpetrate a lie that Palestine was the invention of Yasser Arafat and the Palestine Liberation Organization. Yet the real truth is that Palestine has existed as a discrete country for well over 2,000 years and there is plenty of evidence to prove this. It looks like the Palestinians are the Jews that stayed behind after the Jewish Roman wars (66-135 AD) and who eventually converted to Islam. Whist the rest of the Jews were scattered around the Roman Empire to form the diaspora.

The US neocon's "Regime Change" strategy in Syria was a TOTAL FAILURE. This is todays neocon diplomacy on how to start a war next door to Syria in order to either draw them in, or to effect events inside Syria. Today the US is the evil empire!

Don't be surprised if Israel attacks Damascus at the same time they carpet bomb Southern Lebanon and Beirut.Gonna top off my gas tank on my way home from work tonight

Russia has Damascus covered with S-400's.  The IDF has been attacking Syria with airborn cruise missiles fired from Lebanese air space.  Obviously Russia has told Ziostan that any Israeli planes over Syria will be shot down.  Israel will not attack Damascus with war planes as it would lose its air force.  May use missiles though.  Interesting to see how Putin will react.
