Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah officially declared last week his absolute support for the Syrian regime in its war to suppress a rebellion that started as peaceful popular uprising.
Hezbollah’s position on the Syrian crisis has developed from total denial to cautious silence and open declaration of military engagement.
At first Nasrallah denied that there was a revolution in Syria, saying it was merely a conspiracy to control Syria.
In another televised speech in 2012, Nasrallah urged Syrians to accept reforms by the Syrian president while denying that there were battles in Homs, and said it was merely media fabrications.
The leader of Shiite militia later revealed, albeit indirectly, the involvement of Hezbollah fighters in Syria despite denying that they were fighting alongside the Syria regime. He said that they were Lebanese armed militias in Syria.
On month later Nasrallah’s stance completely changed when he openly declared his absolute support for the Syrian regime against the revolution.
