Where was Arab League during anti-ISIS war, asks Rouhani

The groups described the statement of Arab League foreign ministers following their emergency meeting in Cairo as risky and said Hezbollah is the most significant force standing against the Zionist regime's aggression and terrorism, a Farsi report by IRNA said.

On Tuesday, Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and USA secretary of state Rex Tillerson have discussed combating terrorism and improving regional security in a phone call.

Saudi Arabia subsequently expressed its anger at Hezbollah, which maintains close ties with Iran.

The Palestinian groups said accusing Hezbollah of conducting terrorist attacks is aimed at offering services to the U.S. and the Zionist regime and satisfying Saudi Arabia.

The source highlighted that the people of the Arab world, having been a witness to the conspiracy of the so-called "Arab Spring", know very well what Hezbollah and Iran have done in the course of confronting the Takfiri terrorism and know the sacrifices they have made to foil this conspiracy and resist the Zionist expansionist aggression.

Lebanon's Arab League representative reportedly objected to the declaration accusing Hizbollah, which is part of Lebanon's government and an ally of President Michel Aoun, of terrorism. Iran, along with the US-led global coalition, has been a major supporter of Baghdad in its war against ISIS. The group has since been largely defeated by separate, parallel assaults sponsored by the US and Russian Federation.

Champions League: PSG coach, Emery gives Neymar permission to party
With West Ham and West Brom in transition, Reading defender Liam Moore should be enticed instead by the chance to play for Celtic. He does not hide it. "These are always exceptional games to play in", Areola said. "We have to concentrate every single moment".

Egypt's Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry affirmed Cairo's rejection of any kind of foreign intervention or attempts to destabilise the safety of Arab countries.

Reacting to the emergency meeting, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said, "Unfortunately countries like the Saudi regime are pursuing divisions and creating differences, and because of this they don't see any results other than divisions".

Following Sunday's Arab League session, Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah thanked the Lebanese government Monday for its position and rhetorically asked the foreign ministers who opposed his organization what they contributed to the fight against ISIS. The jihadis' defeat was followed by a series of sweeping losses in its main territories of Iraq and Syria.

On Saturday, Iraqi Defense Minister Irfan al-Hayali held a celebration for the armed forces after Iraqi troops and allied fighters, including the Iran-backed, mostly Shiite Muslim Popular Mobilization Forces, defeated ISIS in the western desert town of Rawa.

Saudi Arabia, along with the West and Turkey, was a leading sponsor of insurgent groups attempting to topple Assad, but has seen its influence in the country wane as the Syrian leader reasserted control with help from Iran and Russian Federation.

Those planning to visit the Gulf kingdom should be aware of "continuing threats from terrorist groups and the threat of ballistic missile attacks on civilian targets by rebel forces in Yemen", it said.
