On January 3, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said in an interview to the Lebanese al-Mayadeen TV that the war in Syria will be over in one or two years and stressed that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad will hold his position until the end of his presidential term.

“The war in Syria needs a maximum of one or two years to end … President al-Assad will stay in the office until his term ends, and he might run again for the presidency,” Nasrallah said.

Regarding the Hezbollah withdrawal from Syria, Nasrallah said that it is related to the result of the Syrian war. He added that the Syrian people and Assad played the key role in the victory of the Damascus government.

“Hezbollah’s withdrawal from Syria is linked to the outcome of the war,” Nasrallah said, adding that “the main factor in the victory is the Syrians themselves, led by President Assad and his cohesive team”.

The Hezbollah leader stressed that Hezbollah does not deny that there is a Syrian opposition. However, he said that there should be talks between all the sides in Syria without any prior condition. He revealed that the prior conditions of the Syrian opposition were behind the fail of all the previous talks.

When asked about how the intervention in Syria effected the Hezbollah capabilities, Nasrallah said that Hezbollah learned a lot from the Syrian Army and transferred its own experience in urban warfare to it.

    Hopefully it will end soon.The rebels are done – their remaining bastions like Idlib,Ghouta,North Homs and Daraa will probably be cleared in 2 years.But the issue with “SDF” remains so the defeat of the rebel forces wont mean full ending of the conflict but it will decrease the casualties in Syria with a lot.

      Do you believe in the effect of word of mouth. For me everything is alive in this world even walls roof, earth even what you see and what you don’t see are all alive. You know the Egyptian parymid how the ancient egyptions took those heavy stones of 100 tones and put in the Parymid. This is just by world of mouth. This is not a magec but this is fact. Mother will never give attention to her baby until baby doesn’t cry. If our Muslim leader and politicians set together that how to end this war that imposed by foreign countries on them and issue statements then whole Syria, Palestine, Iraq, Yemen and Libya can be free from further violence, war will be end and human life and divinity and prosperity will return. All this will hapen just with in one week and not with in one or two years.

    After the complete liberation of Al Qaeda held territory, then the Syrian Arab Army must disarm the Syrian Kurds and expel all foreign invaders, and fortify Syrian territory east of the Euphrates to the Iraq border. Then it must concentrate in the final liberation of the Israeli occupied Syrian Golan Heights.

      They don’t need to do anything about the Golan other than hold Bibi to the agreement where he would cede the Golan Heights back to Syria as he did sign the treaty returning the territory back to Syria before all this. The UNDOF will probably start removing Israel personnel and people according to the agreement and the terrorists in the Golan since it’s their mandate to facilitate the return of the Golan to Syria.

        You dream, Israel will never return Golan to Syria by good will.

          Israel already signed the treaty returning the land in and why Bibi is terrified at Bashar as the leader still in charge since the UN would be requested to assist in the return. Poor Bibi he didn’t realize that things wouldn’t go his way, so why he still tries to undermine Syrian Government ,but his days are numbered in Israel.

    There’s still a lot of area to clear west of the river of regime change elements attacking the government. And east of the river in SDF held areas that hopefully will return to government administration without hostilities. Though I question how realistic that hope is. It’s probably going to require peer air defense in eastern Syria to prevent air strikes against Syrian government coalition forces operating east of the river. And probably some air strikes on SDF positions to let them know that they’re vulnerable to the same treatment that Isis got if they attack the SAA and company.

    So if Israel attack Hez or Lebanon, Syria will join in the fight as brothers and Iran too.

    Then the battle will be on Israel
