Jumblatt: Lebanon does not deserve Saudi accusations of war
Leading Lebanese politician Walid Jumblatt said on Friday his country did not deserve to be accused of declaring war against Saudi Arabia, saying it was
"really sad" that Riyadh had made such a statement after decades of friendship.

"We do not deserve, as Lebanese, such accusations," Jumblatt told Reuters by telephone. "For decades, we've been friends."
