clear

Report: Kuwait’s Al Seyassah newspaper reported that Hassan Nasrollah, the capo of Lebanon's Hezbollah traveled to Damascus to meet with Syrian leader Bashar al-Asad and the secretary of the supreme national security council of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ali Larijani. On Thursday, the Islamic regime’s news media announced Larijani’s trip to Syria. However, later they denied it.

Al Seyassah however wrote that Nasrollah was able to reach Syria with the assistance of Syrian security agents stationed in Lebanon. The topic of discussion between the 3 men will be about the ways Syria and the Islamic Republic of Iran can deliver weapons and ammunition to Hezbollah; Nasrollah intends to be consulting with his “big brothers”.

This newspaper reported that the Hezbollah capo appeared in plain clothes in Damascus without his usual clerical attire and rode in a bullet proof, Syrian Baathist security vehicle. Since the beginning of the war against Lebanese Hizbullah, this is the first time it is reported that Nasrolah has in fact traveled out of Lebanon.

The paper also reported that while Larijani has traveled to Damascus in order to deliver to Nasrollah his new set of orders from Tehran, the Islamic Republic of Iran’s radio and television had claimed that the true nature of his trip was "to achieve the humanitarian objectives".
