Report: Nasrallah Taken for Treatment in Iran
Hizbullah chief Hassan Nasrallah has been transferred to Iran to receive medical treatment due to cancer, a Lebanese website associated with the opposition to Hizbullah reported on Monday, according to Israel’s Channel 2 News.
According to the report on the Sawt Beirut International website, Nasrallah’s condition recently deteriorated and he was evacuated to Tehran by an airplane sent on behalf of the Islamic Republic and which took off from the Rafiq al-Hariri International Airport in Beirut.
The report, however, has not been confirmed by any other source and its reliability is unclear.
Channel 2 News reported that while similar reports on Nasrallah’s condition have been published on Lebanese websites in recent days, the websites in question are all run by opponents of the terror group and tend to publish anti-Hizbullah information.
