Why Do Saudi Arabia and Iran Not Get Along?

Saudi Arabia and Iran have been jostling for religious and political dominance in the Middle East since the 1960s.

Geographically, the two nations aren’t that far apart, but there are some serious divides between the two as explored in the above video.

Saudi Arabia mainly practices a strict form of Sunni Islam called Wahhabism, while in Iran, the population mainly follows the Shia branch of Islam.

They have been arguing and fighting for centuries over who was the rightful heir to the prophet Mohammed.

Both nations are currently involved in a proxy war in Yemen, and are supporting different sides in the ongoing civil war in Syria.
