Interview: Saudi Arabia and Lebanon Tensions Over Foreign Policy

I discuss the recent developments taking place in Lebanon after an eventful week in which:

- Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the UAE issued a travel ban for their citizens and "have urged their citizens to leave Lebanon or avoid traveling there."
