Report: Hezbollah, Iran Would Lead Syrian Counter-Attack
An intelligence report prepared by a European country has found that Syrian President Bashar Assad has handed control of missile installations over to foreign fighters, Lebanon’s A-Nahar reports.
Assad has reportedly put control into the hands of Hezbollah and Iranian units.
Those two groups would be in charge of leading a counter-attack if the United States or other Western nations attack in Syria in response to recent chemical weapons use within the country.
