Hezbollah hails "very big victory" in s. Syria


(MENAFN) Hassan Nasrallah said that a "very big victory" was coming in south Syria, where an army offensive has made rapid gains against insurgents.

As Syrian government forces and their allies liberate more territory, some Lebanese officials have stepped up calls for refugees to leave for parts of Syria where violence died down.

Nasrallah said without elaborating that "international and local groups" were misinforming Syrian refugees and scaring them out of leaving Lebanon to return home.

Lebanon's Shi'ite Hezbollah has provided vital support to Syria's military in the seven-year war across the border, helping it regain swathes of the country.

Nasrallah also said that Hezbollah was establishing a mechanism to return "the biggest possible number" of Syrians refugees who want to go home safely and voluntarily.
