BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:20 A.M.) – Over the last few weeks, there have been rumors about the alleged withdrawal of Hezbollah forces from Syria.

This claim was first announced by the U.S. State Department in June and was later spread by pro-opposition media.

However, a Syrian Army source in eastern Syria has rejected these claims, saying that the Hezbollah forces are still active in many areas, including the Deir Ezzor and Palmyra front.

The Syrian Army source corroborated prior military reports that said the same thing regarding the Lebanese group’s presence inside of Syria.

He would add that Hezbollah does not make these announcements public nor has the Syrian Armed Forces been notified of their departure.

Veteran journalist Elijah Magnier told Al-Masdar shortly after the U.S. State Department’s claim that these reports were indeed false.

In general, this is true as the Lebanese group does not release information regarding their movements and neither does the Iranian Armed Forces.

With recent reports about the Syrian Army preparing to open a new front in southern Aleppo, Hezbollah could partake in this offensive as it is close to their positions in Al-Hadher.

Hezbollah is a military force par excellence and will hardly divulge its operational plans. It is good to keep the terrorists and their Turkish and western sponsors off balance.

There is a lot of disinformation about the limited Hezbollah support for the legitimate government of Syria which is under threat from a terrorist coalition of Zionists, US, UK, Turkey and other NATO sponsors. The more the terrorists come under pressure from the Syrian government forces and their allies, the more desperate the fake news and psy-ops will become.
