Hook: Iran Trying to Destabilize Lebanon Through Hezbollah

U.S. envoy to Iran, Brian Hook, on Wednesday accused Iran of seeking to "sow military roots in Syria", reiterating that it is trying to destabilize Lebanon through Hezbollah. Speaking during a congressional hearing on the Trump administration’s Iran policy, Hook said that Iran "is playing a very long game in Yemen", adding that it would very much like to do in Yemen what it has been able to do in Lebanon and to use the Houthis in the same model that it has used Hezbollah in Lebanon.
