BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:40 A.M.) – Hezbollah is allegedly withdrawing their forces from Syria after more than six years inside the country, the U.S. State Department spokesperson Morgan Ortagus.

According to Ortagus, Hezbollah is withdrawing from Syria due to the ongoing U.S. sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Hezbollah does not issue military statements, so it is very difficult to verify the authenticity of these claims by the U.S. State Department.

Despite these claims by the State Department, there have been no reports from any Syrian channels about this alleged withdrawal of Hezbollah forces.

Furthermore, Hezbollah is embedded with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor. If they did withdraw, the Syrian Army or their allies would have to take over their checkpoints.

Hezbollah officially entered the Syrian War in the Spring of 2013; they would help the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) retake several areas over the last six years, including the border towns of Al-Qusayr, Tal Kalakh, Al-Zabadani, and Yabroud.

The Lebanese group also played a crucial role in the Syrian Army’s successful campaign to retake the eastern district of Aleppo.

It seems withdrawals are individuals, thinning out units. Not withdrawals of units.

The Leftshit West is believing in Santa Claus ? So what about the Houthis or ISIS ? If they are thinking they can eradicate terrorists organizations or international rebellion movements only by doing economic sanction, there would be no more terrorism in the world for a very long time now LOL.

The Houthis who are the most sanctioned movement in the world and even besieged from all side are now more powerfull than previous years, they created new sophisticated missiles and military drones since, increasing the losses of the Saudi Coalition.
