Hizbullah Rejects Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri's Resignation

The international organization's presence in Lebanon include the Office of the UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon (UNSCOL) who serves as the secretary-general's representative to the Lebanese Government, all political parties and the diplomatic community based in the country, and works on behalf of the UN chief to assist Lebanese parties to reach peaceful and consensus based solutions to contentious issues.

At his family's urging, he returned to Beirut to enter politics, playing a key role in mass demonstrations that ended with the departure of Syrian forces from Lebanon after a 30-year presence. Hariri gave a televised address from Riyadh in which he strongly implied Iran and its proxies in Lebanon were behind the plot to assassinate him.

The resignation marks the end of a shaky Shia-Sunni political alliance forming the government, which has somewhat managed to keep away the violence battering neighbouring Syria.

A spokesman for the Iranian foreign ministry said earlier Monday that Saudi Arabia's assertion that Iran was responsible for the missile launch was "false, irresponsible, destructive and provocative", according to the Tasnim news agency.

European Commission Increases GDP Growth Forecast for Croatia
Wage dynamics are still constrained and inflation dampened because of slow productivity growth and a slack in the labour market. Despite the pick up in growth, Europe's unemployment rate is expected to be 8.5% next year - double the rate in the UK.

Riyadh has recently been making aggressive political manoeuvres to limit Iran's influence in the Middle East, where Lebanon remains a flashpoint.

It is reasonable to assume that Hizbullah, with the support of Iran, will make a great effort to prevent these developments.

Referring to the resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri on November 3, 2017, Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah labeled the action as a "Saudi-imposed decision".

Mr Hariri's father, former prime minister Rafik al-Hariri, was assassinated in 2005.

Mariah Carey accused of sexual harassment by former head of security
TMZ is reporting that Michael's lawyer has drafted up a lawsuit, which claims the 47-year-old diva owes his company $221,329.51. In his complaint, he says that Mariah Carey had engaged " in sexual acts with the intent that they may be seen by [him] ".

"The resignation was aimed at creating tension in Lebanon and the region". All of Hariri's statements attested to the continuation of his future plans as prime minister.

Nasrallah wondered if Saudi Arabia was holding Hariri against his will and whether Hariri was not permitted to return to Lebanon.

"We will treat the government of Lebanon as a government declaring a war because of Hezbollah militias", Minister for Gulf Affairs Thamer al-Sabhan told Saudi news station Al-Arabiya. Aoun must appoint the candidate with most support among MP's, who he is expected to consult in the coming days.

Hariri has visited Saudi Arabia twice in the past week, meeting Crown Prince Mohammed and other senior officials. Iran was sowing strife, destruction and ruin wherever it went and accused it of a "deep hatred for the Arab nation", he said. The company was hit by a decline in oil prices led to sharp state spending cuts in the kingdom.
