Saudi Arabia has rallied its allies, including Bahrain, to isolate Iran diplomatically, but Tehran's role in fighting ISIS and its rapidly expanding sphere of influence has gained it allies, especially in Lebanon, Iraq and Syria.

Bahraini Foreign Minister Khaled bin Ahmed said Tuesday that Iran is targeting the Arab countries to bring them down, and subsequently control them.

He also warned that Saudi will not stand idly by in the face of the Iranian "aggression".

"Only Iran and Iran's agents are screaming and cursing the Arab Leagues decision", the Minister responded on his twitter handle.

Yes, Iran's control over Lebanon has taken its toll on the country, creating sectarian rifts, financial corruption, social strife and political upheaval, but that doesn't mean that the Regime can not be evicted from the country and the balance of power restored.

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.

In a statement after the meeting, the Arab League accused Iran of arming the Houthis in Yemen. The Syrian government, backed by Russian Federation and Iran, was replaced by the pro-rebel Syrian National Coalition in the Arab League in 2013, but the Syrian seat was again vacated in 2014. The group has since been largely defeated by separate, parallel assaults sponsored by the US and Russian Federation.

Meanwhile, former President of the Revolutionary Council of Yemen, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, said as expected the emergency meeting of the Arab League foreign ministers ended in no tangible result.

Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates supported the Saudi request for the extraordinary meeting, which was also approved by Djibouti, the current chair of the pan-Arab bloc, according to a memorandum.

There is no reason to doubt the clear link between Hezbollah, headed by terrorist Hassan Nasrallah, and the Iranian Regime.

"Where was the Arab League when the Syrians were beheaded in Aleppo?" The jihadis' defeat was followed by a series of sweeping losses in its main territories of Iraq and Syria.

In a statement, Adel al-Jubeir, Saudi Foreign Minister, said Iran was aiming "to destabilise and fuel sectarian rift" in the region.
