On November 22d, 2017, Lebanon’s Independence Day, Saad Hariri, Lebanese Prime minister, returned to Beirut after two weeks of confinement in Saudi Arabia, where it was feared that he would be evicted by the crown prince Mohammed bin Salmane. Supporters of his “Future” party came from all Lebanon to celebrate and cheer as he gave a press conference announcing that he would return to the office of PM, thus ending 2 weeks of political crisis in Lebanon. This event shows the strength of Saudi influence in this country, next to Iran and France.
