Hezbollah rebuffed on Tuesday Moroccan claims accusing it of arming and training the Polisario fighters in the north African country.
In a statement released by the Party’s Media Relations office, Hezbollah categorically denied the accusations.
“It is regrettable that Morocco resorts, under pressure by US, Israel and Saudi, to false accusations,” the statement said.
“The Moroccan Foreign ministry could have found more convincing pretext to cut its ties with Iran instead of fabricating baseless excuses,” according to the statement.
Earlier on Tuesday, Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita accused Iran and Hezbollah of training and arming Polisario fighters.
He also announced that Morocco would be severing ties with Iran, closing its embassy in Tehran and expelling the Iranian ambassador in Rabat.
