Saudi Arabia ordered all of its citizens to leave Lebanon on Thursday amid escalating tension between the two nations over Iranian influence. Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri resigned earlier this week while on a trip to Saudi Arabia. Since then, Hariri has not returned to Lebanon, and there are questions about whether he is free to do so. Friends in Hariri’s political party, which has historically aligned with Saudi Arabia, demanded his return Thursday.
