Hezbollah Redeploys in Anticipation of U.S. Attack on Syria

AFP is reporting that “officers and members of” Lebanon’s Shiite Hezbollah group have been ordered to “man their positions” in anticipation of a U.S. strike on Syria.

According to AFP, known Hezbollah fighters “have disappeared from local villages in the last five days” and “switched off their mobile phones to ensure they could not be traced.”

In the southern suburbs of Beirut, “teenagers have replaced more experienced fighters at checkpoints inspecting cars.” 

Although Hezbollah spokesmen have not make any official comments about where these fighters are headed, they are believed to be taking up positions in preparation for countering a U.S. attack on Syria. 

AFP reports that Syria is complimenting Hezbollah forces by also adding Syrian “units that have not participated until now in the conflict.”
