Syria said the Saudi-led Arab countries are aware of the sacrifices Israel and Hezbollah have made in resisting Israel's "Zionist expansionist aggression."
Syria has denounced the Saudi-led Arab League, describing it as a group backed by the petrodollars of "sheikhdoms" and condemning its statements blaming Hezbollah and Iran for supporting "terrorism" in the region.
An official at Syria's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said in a statement Tuesday that Arab nations are aware of the sacrifices Israel and Hezbollah have made in resisting Israel's "Zionist expansionist aggression."
"Whoever provided all forms of support for Takfiri terrorism and committed genocide against the Yemeni people does not have the credibility to speak about Arab national security, because it is itself the real threat to the interests of the Muslim nations and Arab national security," the official said in reference to Saudi Arabia.
The official also said that money from oil sheikhs was being used against the security of Muslim countries in order to advance the agendas of "Muslims' enemies."
The Arab League met Sunday in Cairo, Egypt, at the request of Saudi Arabia. The group then issued a statement accusing Iran of pursuing aggressive policies against Arab states, and deeming Lebanon's Hezbollah Shiite resistance movement a "terrorist organization."
Hezbollah responded to the attacks Monday, dismissing the Arab League statements as "silly" and "absurd."
Rejecting both the terror label and accusations of regional meddling, Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah condemned the group of Arab countries, asking what they had contributed to the fight against the Islamic State group.
Iran also rejected the allegations, describing the league's statement as "worthless" and "full of lies and distortions."
And Palestinian resistance group Hamas joined the condemnation, insisting instead that Israel's actions against Palestinians should be considered acts of terrorism.
Saudi-Iranian relations have reached new lows amid mutual charges that the two states support opposing sides in the conflicts in Yemen, Palestine, Syria and Iraq.
