Hezbollah is taking such a beating in Syria I wouldn’t be surprised if they pulled out.
Iran is quietly working with the terror group Hezbollah to ensure that Syria remains aligned with Tehran if Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is deposed by rebel forces, according to an Israeli research organization.
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah secretly traveled to Tehran in mid-April to meet with Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and the commander of Iran’s elite Quds Force, according to a report authored by Israeli Brigadier-General (ret.) Shimon Shapira, a senior research associate at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA).
Nasrallah and Khamenei have devised a plan to establish a “150,000-man force for Syria, the majority of whom will come from Iran, Iraq, and a smaller number from Hezbollah and the Gulf states,” the report states. […]
Iran aims to build “a popular sectarian army” comprised of ethnic Arab Shiites and Alawites that would “be backed by forces from Iran, Iraq, Hezbollah, and symbolic contingents from the Persian Gulf,” the report states.
Once a force of 150,000 fighters is built, it “will be integrated with the Syrian army,” the report concludes.
