Hezbollah intervened in Syria to support the Syrian Arab Army in 2012. The group took part in several battles around Damascus, especially in the Set Zaynab town and Eastern Ghouta. Dozens of the group’s fighters were killed.

The Lebanese group is now under immense pressure from other Lebanese parties and Western countries, led by the U.S, to withdraw its fighters from Syria.

A recent report revealed that Hezbollah had already withdrew some of its fighters from Syria. Gebran Bassil, head of Lebanon’s Free Patriotic Movement, also confirmed that the group was close to full withdrawal from the country.
