Hezbollah asks Iran to send more fighters to Syria

 

(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) Pressure from stalwart Lebanese opponents of Hezbollah’s increasing involvement in Syria has prompted the terrorist organization to send a delegation to Iran to ask the Islamic Republic to shoulder more of the burden in support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, the Saudi-owned newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat reported Sunday. Mounting casualties among Hezbollah fighters in Syria has led some of the organization’s Lebanese supporters to petition its leaders to scale back its involvement in the Syrian conflict, the Saudi paper reported. Saudi Arabia supports the more Sunni-extremist Islamic elements fighting to topple Assad’s regime, elements that are also directly confronting Hezbollah’s Shiite fighters in Syria.
