Media: Hezbollah leaves Syria after Russian troops are gone


Lebanese opposition journalist Ali El-Emin said that hundreds of fighters of the Shiite movement Hezbollah began to return from Syria to their homeland. He wrote about this on his website.

“As we have learned from various sources close to the Hezbollah movement, hundreds of fighters are returning from Syria to their homeland. In 3 days they will disperse to their homes in the Lebanese towns and villages,” – says the Lebanese journalist.

Emin writes that this move of Hezbollah, as well as the withdrawal of Russian troops, is happening within the agreements between Russia and the United States, and aimed at giving new impetus to the search for a political solution to the conflict in Syria, and the extension of the ceasefire.

Emin also said that despite the fact that Hezbollah withdraws a significant portion of troops (in particular, from the province of Aleppo), militia groups will remain on the Syrian-Lebanese border near Kalamuna and Zabadani.

On March 14, Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered to begin the withdrawal of the main group of troops from Syria.
