Hezbollah not to leave Syria until "liberation"


(MENAFN Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah announced that Hezbollah forces will stay in Syria as long as it takes until the war-torn country is "liberated" and its "territorial integrity is restored."

"I will tell you that if the whole world comes together to force us to leave Syria, they will not be able to evict us," Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said in a televised address, adding that only the Syrian leadership could ask them to leave.

Israel has repeatedly struck Hezbollah and Iranian targets in Syria, saying they must leave the country, with which it shares a border. Washington has also demanded that Iran and forces it backs quit.

Hezbollah is a Lebanon-based Shiite resistance movement founded in the 1980s, which is engaged in several military conflicts with Israel.
