The cable sent from the MFA in Jerusalem to all Israeli embassies toes the Saudi line regarding the Hariri resignation. The Israeli diplomats were instructed to Demarch their host governments over the domestic political situation in Lebanon. The cable said: "You need to stress that the Hariri resignation shows how dangerous Iran and Hezbollah are for Lebanon's security"
Saudi FM: Accusations claiming that Saudi Arabia forced Hariri to resign are worthless. Hariri can leave the Kingdom any time he wants.

King Salman receives Lebanese Prime Minister Hariri
Lebanese President: Political leaders responsive to calls for calm after PM’s resignation, strengthening security and national unity
Nasrallah: I again call on calm and preserving Lebanese integrity, cooperation between Aoun and Berri, other institutions to end this crisis
Nasrallah: Despite attacks there is valiant Yemeni defence, they should look at their aggression on Yemen before talking about Lebanon
Nasrallah: They did it in Yemen bcoz it is a border area but how will they attack Lebanon? From Syria? Palestine?
Nasrallah: Another rumour, is that Crown Prince is preparing for a 'Decisive Storm' operation in Lebanon, but I say this has no basis
Nasrallah: Today more than any time before, an Israeli decision to go to a war takes into consideration the regional situation
Nasrallah: Israel decision does not care about Lebanese politics
Nasrallah: Another rumour that caused anxiety is threat of Israeli invasion, Israel will not invade until they are sure they will win quick
Nasrallah: This rumour could be used as reason to prevent return of Hariri to Lebanon
Nasrallah: Regarding Hariri assassination rumour; Arabiya spread it saying Leb security foiled plot, Leb institutions all denied it
Nasrallah: Anyone that wants to bring us back to an unstable situation must be called out
Nasrallah: Prez election brought us into a peaceful stage
Nasrallah: We must stick together, no one in Lebanon wants to go back to situation like it was years ago
Nasrallah: Prez Aoun from the start is meeting with everyone along with Berri and are carrying out their duties
Nasrallah: We call on staying away from sectarian protests
Nasrallah: This will affect Leb in general manner but will not affect our standpoint
Nasrallah: There are some ppl in Leb who see this situation to chase their own political interests
Nasrallah: My meeting with the members of the Saray to combat the Occupation was celebrating 20th anniversary of founding, nothing w Hariri
Nasrallah: We call for calm and patience for a clearer image and for Leb ppl not feel anxiety and trust rumours
Nasrallah: When large number of Saudi officials and emirs are targeted then the PM's situation must be looked into
Nasrallah: Today is it being discussed in Lebanon whether or not Hariri is under arrest
Nasrallah: Or is it to do with their problem with Hariri's personal views? Or is it a Saudi attack on Lebanon to tackle Iran?
Nasrallah: Problem is in Saudi. Is it an internal issue, financial or about power? Is Hariri stuck in between Emir infighting?
Nasrallah: It is key to dealing with escalation. It is not bcoz of internal issue, Hariri met with everyone with no problem
Nasrallah: No one should rush to conclusion because we must understand reason behind the resignation
Nasrallah: We will not discuss what was discussed in resignation statement because it is a Saudi statement
Nasrallah: We question context of resignation and stress Lebanon's integrity. Saudi interferes while blaming others of interfering
Nasrallah: Hezbollah did not want this to happen. We wanted situation to continue as it was, not necessarily pleasing everyone
Nasrallah: Everyone was surprised. From Prez to Future bloc. It caused rumours and threats
Nasrallah: Why was he not allowed to return and resign inside Lebanon? His speech was not Lebanese, it was written by a Saudi
Nasrallah: Nothing is confirmed. However, conditions shows it was Saudi not Hariri decision
Nasrallah: He then went to KSA and resigned. It was broadcasted on Al-Arabiya and not on (Pro-Hariri) Future TV
Nasrallah: Hariri originally stressed to ministers that KSA respected Leb integrity and was going to give aid to Army etc
Nasrallah: Days ago, Saudi official talked about Lebanon and Hezbollah and threatened etc. Hariri was then called to KSA
Israeli military has announced it is holding the bodies of 5 militants who were killed during digging of a terror tunnel from Gaza
Nasrallah: Tonight I will discuss issue of Hariri's resignation, other issues will be discussed during next speech
