Just last week Hasan Nasrallah was begging al-Qaeda for a truce.
(Times of Israel) — Some 5,000 Hezbollah combatants entered Syria in December to aid the faltering regime of Bashar Assad, a Saudi daily reported on Monday.
According to Al-Watan, a government daily, four “support battalions” comprising at least 1,300 soldiers each had succeeded in killing some 300 regime soldiers [I think they meant rebels] in recent weeks as battles rage between government and opposition forces around the capital Damascus. The fighters reportedly entered Syria through the border town of Mdhaya, located north-east of Damascus.
Hezbollah has remained staunchly allied with the Assad regime throughout the popular uprising in Syria that began in March 2011. Syria has served as a conduit of logistical support and weapons sent to Lebanon from Iran.
A number of Lebanese bloggers have reported funerals conducted by Hezbollah recently for fighters killed in action in Syria, Jordanian daily Al-Ghad reported on Monday.
