Report: Khamenei Tells Nasrallah to Go All Out in Syria

Reports in Arab media, Thursday, revealed that Supreme Iranian Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, ordered Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, the Secretary-General of Hizbullah to activate all of the terror organization's military might against the Syrian rebels. The order came during a meeting, about a month ago, in Tehran.

A source cited in the Kuwaiti newspaper Ar-Rai said that "Nasrallah was surprised by Khamenei's order, but it was made ​​clear to him that it was a campaign to maintain the Assad regime and cut off supply routes of the rebels." The Al - Hayat newspaper reported that a senior Iranian official said, in the name of preserving the Assad regime, the regime of the ayatollahs allowed Hizbullah freedom of activity in the fighting and allowed it to open a new front against Israel on the Golan Heights.
