Hizbullah Says Nasrallah Did Not Leave Lebanon, Is in Good Health

Hizbullah issued a statement on Tuesday denying reports that the party's leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah has been transferred to Iran for treatment after falling ill.

"Nasrallah is in good health and he did not leave the country,” the statement said.

The Turkish state-run Anadolu news agency had reported earlier on Tuesday that Nasrallah suffered a certain health condition several days ago and was transferred to a private hospital in Beirut's southern suburb and later to Iran for treatment.

"Nasrallah left Lebanon to Tehran via Rafik Hariri International Airport,” sources close to Hizbullah had said, according to Anadolu.

The agency noted: “The Hizbullah leader is in a stable condition at the moment”.

Nasrallah's last televised appearance took place earlier in February when he gave a speech during the annual commemoration of the party's “leader martyrs”.
