Saudi Arabia has suspended $3 billion aid of French military equipment to Lebanese army.

Saudi Arabia on Friday, February 19, 2016, announced a halt to the $3 billion program for military supplies to Lebanon in protest against Hezbollah, the group fighting in support of Syria’s regime. The decision came after Lebanese Foreign Minister Gibran Bassil declined to support Saudi resolutions against Iran during two meetings of Arab and Muslim foreign ministers.
