Hizballah lost 1,000 dead, 10,000 injured in Syrian war – report
A Lebanese intelligence source reports that Hizballah lost more than 1,000 dead and 10,000 wounded in its three-year intervention in the Syrian war. These were the first estimates any Middle East intelligence source has released on Hizballah’s casualties in the fighting alongside the Syrian army. The same source explained that the Syrian rebels had studied Hizballah's urban guerrilla tactics and were forcing the Lebanese Shiite fighters to fight “every inch” of the way.
Friday night, the Hizballah leader, Hassan Nasrallah, said that Israeli armed forces lacked the right strategy for winning another war against his group. Speaking on the ninth anniversary of the 2006 Lebanese war, he accused the US of backing ISIS as its front to attain the goals of partitioning Syria and Iraq.
