Saudi Arabia plans to deport Lebanese citizens who support Hezbollah because of the militant group's role in the Syrian civil war, the kingdom's envoy to Lebanon said.

The warning comes amid Hezbollah's increasingly prominent participation in the Syrian conflict, with members of the group fighting on the side of President Bashar Assad's government forces.
