Report: Hizbullah Freezing Internal Affairs until Qalamun Battle Endsإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Hizbullah will not tackle any internal Lebanese affair until it the end of the battle of Syria's al-Qalamun region, reported al-Jadeed television on Saturday.
An informed source said that “it is out of the question for Hizbullah to address any issue before the battle is resolved.”
A battle for Syria's border region of Qalamun is imminent as Hizbullah and the Syrian army are making the final preparations for the fight, media reports said Friday.
Hizbullah's preparations with the Syrian army are focused on a battle that will fortify Qalamun's villages and those on the Lebanese side of the border, they added.
Meanwhile, the Kuwaiti daily al-Seyassah reported Saturday that six Hizbullah fighters were killed in Syria's Reef Latakia region on Friday.
They were killed when a residence housing ten party members was shelled.
The wounded were transferred to hospitals in Syria.
Some of the dead fighters were identified as Hussein Mohammed Nasrerddine, Bassem Tahmaz, Mortada Ali Youssef, and Hassan Jamal Taher.
Hizbullah announced Friday that the date and time of their funerals will be determined once they are returned to Lebanon.
Hizbullah has sent fighters across the border to aid Syrian regime troops in Qalamun and in several regions across Syria.
Its involvement helped the Syrian army recapture most of Qalamun from rebel hands.
The Lebanese army for its part has been battling Syria-based militants from al-Nusra and the Islamic State group who are entrenched on the porous border between Lebanon and Syria.
